# Beamer columns misaligned vertically

I'm trying to pu my beamer TOC on two columns and I have this problem. When I divide my page in two equal columns, the left column is vertically misaligned.

\begin{frame}[plain]
\frametitle{Le Langage}
\begin{columns}[t]%
\begin{column}{.45\linewidth}%
\tableofcontents[part=1,sections=<1-2>]%
\end{column}%
\begin{column}{.45\linewidth}%
\tableofcontents[part=1,sections=<3-4>]%
\end{column}%
\end{columns}%
\end{frame}


But when I give a wider column at left, (When there is no line return) the columns are vertically aligned as I want.

\begin{frame}[plain]
\frametitle{Le Langage}
\begin{columns}[t]%
\begin{column}{.4\linewidth}%
\tableofcontents[part=1,sections=<1-2>]%
\end{column}%
\begin{column}{.6\linewidth}%
\tableofcontents[part=1,sections=<3-4>]%
\end{column}%
\end{columns}%
\end{frame}


Do you know how to give my columns the same width and the correct vertical alignment ?

• Try giving the option [T] instead of [t] to {columns}. – Herr K. Jun 2 '15 at 21:30
• It's working well with option [T] – JeanJouX Jun 2 '15 at 22:21

I cannot reproduce the problem without an MWE. But it seems that giving the option [T] instead of [t] to the {columns} environment would solve the problem.
