[Tex/LaTex] Resuming a list


I'd like to be able to resume an enumerated list, continuing the old numbering, after some intervening text which should not be formatted like a list item. Is there a nice way to do this?

In particular, I don't want to start a second list with a hard-coded initial counter value, because that will break if I change the number of items in the first list.

Best Answer

This can easily be done using the enumitem package, for example:

  \item One
  \item Two
Some text
  \item Three


alt text

Alternatively, the package mdwlist provides the commands \suspend and \resume for temporarily ending a list and restarting it.
