Hi Otared,

Thanks for your response. In mkii this worked flawlessly.

I tried it in mkiv Texlive too (2017.05.15 21:48), but it does not work. Could this be because I have item [it:ref] rather than \startitem[it:ref] … \stopitem?

Anyway, I will install a new standalone - on my Mac (no TeXShop).

Robert
