gatherenum – A crossover of align* and enumerate

This package (ab)uses the inline enumeration capabilities of enumitem to add a “displayed” enumeration mode, triggered by adding ‘gathered’ to the key-value option list of the enumerate environment. The end result is similar to a regular enumerate environment wrapped in a multicols environment, with the following advantages:

  • Gathered enumerate can pack items depending on their actual width rather than a fixed, constant number per line.
  • Gathered enumeration fills items in a line-major order (instead of column-major order), which my students found less confusing. YMMV.

The package depends on enumitem, expl3, and xparse,
