## single-space lists in latex

much thanks to ilana bromberg heintz for the following hint!

When you have a list environment, either itemize or enumerate, it automatically double spaces between the items.  That’s annoying.  To get rid of it, just add ‘mdwlist’ to the \usepackage list in your declarations, then use\begin{enumerate*} and \end{enumerate*} (or itemize*).

Single spaced!

try also the package
“enumitem”

and then set the spacing of the list
e.g.
\setlist{itemsep=4pt,parsep=5pt,topsep=5pt}

you can change the spacing globally without adding the * everywhere
