# Tabbing inside itemize (or itemize inside tabbing)

How can I combine the tabbing and itemize environments so that I'll have a list in which I can use tabstops?

- It would be nice             foo    bar
- If I could get this working  baz    quuz


I know I could just use an ordinary tabbing environment and fake the first "column" to always display a bullet point, but I'm sure there is a more standard solution.

What about a table environment or longtable for breaking across pages. Use the listliketab package

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{listliketab}
\begin{document}

\storestyleof{itemize}
\begin{listliketab}
\begin{tabular}{Llll}
\textbullet &  It would be nice            & foo  &  bar   \\
\textbullet &  If I could get this working & baz  &  quuz  \\
\end{tabular}
\end{listliketab}
\end{document}


It has the advantage that you can use p columns to wrap long lines, etc.

Yeah, I figured I could make it work by "faking" a list environement using \textbullet. I was hoping to be able to use a itemize-like environment, but your solution is better than nothing, so thank you. –  Thomas Mar 22 '11 at 14:51

You could employ the tabto package for this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tabto}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item It wouild be nice            \tabto{6cm} foo \tabto{7cm} bar
\item If I could get this working  \tabto{6cm} baz \tabto{7cm} quuz
\end{itemize}
\end{document}


It's not entirely perfect though, as tabto does not always get the baseline right. In some occasions I had to use \raisebox or \struts to fix this.
