# Inline Enumerations in LaTeX

Normally you use the \enumerate command in LaTeX to create enumerated lists like this:

1. I
2. use
3. lots
4. of
5. space!

If you prefer your enumeration “inline”, you could do that:

...

\newcommand{\inlineEnum}[1]{
\ifcsname c@#1\endcsname
\textbf{\arabic{#1})~}
\else
\newcounter{#1}
\setcounter{#1}{1}
\textbf{\arabic{#1})~}
\fi
}

...

\begin{document}

\inlineEnum{counter} Here is some text.
\inlineEnum{counter} Here is some more text.
\inlineEnum{counter} And another sentence!

...

\end{document}


Much better:

1. Here is some text. 2) Here is some more text. 3) And another sentence!
