I am not sure how to make these two minipages to follow right after each other rather than showing in two different pages while still there's space in the first page:

This is how it looks: enter image description here enter image description here

  • minipages can't break over pages. The second minipage here looks too long to fit to the lower part of the page where the first minipage is placed, so it must be shifted to another page. You need breakable box environment, such as mdframed or tcolorbox. And please provide compilable examples, not just fragments of code – user31729 Sep 4 '15 at 0:43
  • please make your code complete I mean add \documentclass.....\end{document} – touhami Sep 4 '15 at 6:43

    why are you using minipage here? – David Carlisle Sep 4 '15 at 9:11

A minipage can't be broken to spread it's content over multiple pages, that's why it's called a minipage. If content larger than would fit on a page is put into a minipage, the minipage content is shifted to the next page and clipped off at the page bottom. This is certainly not what is desired here.

A proposition: Use the breakable feature of tcolorbox and fake a minipage of width 0.85\textwidth, it will break automatically then and the itemize list hasn't to be interrupted.

Another important question is: Is a minipage needed at all?

No need for minipages or any special frame environment. You can just use the \marginpar macro after setting up the required position and width of that \marginpar. The following three lines move the \marginpar to the left, give it a width of 0.8in, and define size and shape of the font, respectively.

\reversemarginpar 
\setlength\marginparwidth{0.8in}
\newcommand{\LHEAD}[1]{\leavevmode\marginpar{\large\scshape#1}} 

You can adjust the lengths as you wish and the \LHEAD{} command can be inserted within an item without any space after it.

Of course, you will need also to set margins using geometry package like this:

\usepackage[margin=1.125in,top=1.375in,right=1in,left=2in]{geometry}
