### Indention of itemized List outside of its Scope

I get an unwanted indentation when using this code for itemized lists (see attachment).
Definitions:\begin{itemize}   \item Functional requirement:   \item Non-functional requirement:\end{itemize} Abbreviations:\begin{itemize}   \item FR: Functional requirement   \item NFR: Non-functional requirement\end{itemize}

"Abbreviations:" is not supposed to be indented, what to do?

The term "Abbreviations:" is indented by an amount of horizontal space determined by \parindent because it follows a blank line in the source code which introduces a new paragraph. The term "Definitions:" is not indented because it probably directly follows a heading (chapter, section, …). If you do not want that indentation, either delete the blank line or comment it (by simply inserting %).
\documentclass{article}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \begin{document}   \section{Foo}     Definitions:     \begin{itemize}       \item Functional requirement:       \item Non-functional requirement:     \end{itemize}%     Abbreviations:     \begin{itemize}       \item FR: Functional requirement       \item NFR: Non-functional requirement     \end{itemize}\end{document}

Next time please prepare a self-contained and minimal example to give an adequate problem description and in order to avoid speculations and guesswork.

Best regards and welcome to the board
