7.5 Ipe symbols used from text objects

Presentations often make use of itemize environments. You can make these prettier in a number of ways:

You can color your bullets:

<preamble>
\def\labelitemi{\LARGE\textcolor{red}{$\bullet$}}
</preamble>

Enumeration numbers could be put in a colored box:

<preamble>
\newcommand{\labelenumi}{\fbox{\Roman{enumi}}}
</preamble>

You could use the Dingbats font for nice enumerations, for instance by putting \usepackage{pifont} in your preamble, and then having text objects with \begin{dinglist}{43} or \begin{dingautolist}{172} (or use 182, 192, 202 for various circled numbers).

You can mark items as "good" and "bad" using these "bullets":

Bad item: \textcolor{red}{\ding{55}}
Good item: \textcolor{green}{\ding{52}}
