I'd like to preview the numbers in an enumerate environment.

I did this :

% \makeatletter
% \PreviewMacro*[?[{@{[]}}{}][#1]\item % found in prauctex.cfg
% \makeatother

Good $a^{2}+b^{2}=c^{2}$
\item foo
\item bar

The math equation gets previewed just fine but the image for the \item
macro is blank. Am I doing it wrong ?

As a workaround I can \PreviewEnvironment{enumerate} : it'll typeset the
whole environment which I don't need but it doesn't really hurt me
