enumeration

Nitecki, Zbigniew H.
I apologize for this, which is really an amstex or latex question.  I recall once seeing an answer (somewhere) and can’t find it now.

In the amsarticle document style as presently constituted, when you start a list with 
\begin{enumerate}
\item…
the numer of the (first) item gets printed as "(1)";  it used to print as “1.”.  
The former, “(1)”, drives me crazy.  The latter, “1.”,  is what all the “tutorials” online assume happens.

I think I once saw a way to change this back by putting an option into the 
document style, or perhaps via some other universal command, but can’t find it now.  

I tried a local command, that is, beginning my environment with
\begin{enumerate}[label=\arabic*.]
and got the error message
./135F20HW1.tex:73: Missing number, treated as zero.
<to be read again> 
                   \c@* 
l.73 \begin{enumerate}[label=\arabic*.]

So how do I restore the old way with a single universal command in the preamble, so I don’t have to change things every time I use the enumerate environment?

Re: enumeration

Nitecki, Zbigniew H.
Thank you for the suggestion.  The first version works;  when I put \usepackage[shortlabels]{enumitem} in the preamble, I get the error message
/usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/tex/latex/enumitem/enumitem.sty:1426: LaTeX 
Error: Command \setlist already defined.
               Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
 ...                                              
                                                  
l.1426 ...ar{\enit@setlist\@ne}{\enit@setlist\z@}}
                                                  
But this is no issue for me;  I can certainly use the first solution.

But I was hoping for a way to override the parentheses format, which I think is created by the amsarticle documentstyle, for all enumerations of lists with a single 
command (or setting a parameter) in the preamble.

In any case, I have a workaround if necessary.  Thanks again.

Re: enumeration

Nestor Aguilera-3
Hi Zbigniew,

In amsclass.pdf (in terminal put "texdoc amsclass"), page 34, it says that you could redefine "\labelenumi" if you want a period after the number.

Hope it helps.

Best,

Nestor

Howdy,

And \labelnumii--\labelnumiv for level 2--4.

You can redefine how an enumeration is formatted, for example, using

  \renewcommand{\labelenumi}{\arabic{enumi}.}


will do.

Thanks Herb! I think the problem was mentioned not too long ago in this list, cant't remember when/who.

Re: enumeration

In reply to this post by Luis Sequeira-5
Hi Luis,

I think just

   \renewcommand{\labelenumi}{\theenumi.}

is OK, so there is no conflict if for whatever reason "\theenumi" is changed (see amsclass.pdf, p. 34).

Best,

Nestor
