[OS X TeX] Referring to custom labels in enumerate environments

Hi,
you could try entering

\renewcommand{\theenumi}{T\arabic{enumi}}

just before the environment, and then skip the optional argument (i.e.
[T1.]).

If you don't want to keep the change for other environments, just after
the environment revert to

\renewcommand{\theenumi}{\arabic{enumi}}

Best,
Peter
