Items: Dash or Bullet?

If you are having the same problem I had today, which is that when you use \begin{itemize} you get a dash instead of a bullet for your \item, the solution is adding the following line to your preamble:

\renewcommand\labelitemii{$\bullet$}

You can actually use any symbol you like to mark the item. A quick and ad-hoc way is:

\item[*]

if you want to see * instead of the bullet, for instance, marking the start of the item.

If you want to see a plus, then write

\item[+]
