### Lists

#### Default list

Form lists by creating an itemize environment. The numbering for the itemized list is determined by the first option of the startitemize command. Here are the possible values for the first option and the result these values produce.

 setup result n 1,2,3,4 a a,b,c,d A A,B,C,D KA A,B,C,D [small caps] r i,ii,iii,iv R I, II, III, IV KR I, II, III, IV[small caps] m 1,2,3,4[smaller numbers] g α,β,γ G Α,Β,Γ 1 • 2 — 3 * 4 ‣ 5 [circle] 6 [big circle] 7 [bigger circle] 8 ❏ [box]

The item command creates the actual item in the list.

\startitemize[n]
\item {\sl Temperance.} Eat not to dulness. Drink not to Elevation.
\item {\sl Silence.} Speak not but what may benefit other or yourself.
...
\stopitemize


### Tips

• If you use continue as an additional property in the startitemize command, you can continue numbering a list already started. (\startitemize[n, continue])

• If you use inmargin as an additional property in the startitemize command, you will push the markers into the margin.

• If you use the use intro property in the startitemize command, you will ensure theat the previous paragraph and the list will stick together and not be broken by a page break.

• If your item contains more than one paragraph, use the par comand to separate them. Note that the ConTeXt manual suggests you use the head command instead of the item command for items with more than one paragraph, but I found the head command could not handle items with more than 2 paragraphs.
