# Make two-columned list start at same line as its section

Following this: Make list start at same line as its section I now have two columns, instead of four, but things don't work out, see for yourself (you can get res at CV in Latex):

\documentclass[margin,line]{res}
\usepackage[inline]{enumitem}
\setlist[itemize]{leftmargin=*}

\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}

Combine the good characteristics from both approaches; I want the first list to start at the same height as Languages".

\section{\sc Languages}
\begin{multicols}{2}
\begin{itemize}[leftmargin=*]
\item English (C2)
\item German (B1)
\item Italian (A1)
\item Greek (native)
\end{itemize}
\end{multicols}

Other solution, which does that, but doesn't vertically align the li's and minimizes the space between the two lines, which is ugly.
\section{\sc Languages}
\item English (C2)
\item German (B1) \\   % I break the line here
\item Italian (A1)
\item Greek (native)
\end{itemize*}
\end{document}


and the output:

Any idea on how to tackle this?

• Perhaps the tasks package is much better here than enumitem for this particular setup! – user31729 Jul 24 '16 at 22:46
• What Bernard has done in his answer ;-) – user31729 Jul 24 '16 at 23:40
• OK thanks @ChristianHupfer (I managed to delete my comment by mistake before, I should get a badge about it... :) ). – gsamaras Jul 25 '16 at 0:36

Here is a solution with tasks. If you want sections tobe in small caps, you can redefine \sectionfont in the preamble. Note the syntax \sc, \bf, it is deprecated and should be replaced with the switches \scshape, \bfseries, \itshape or the commands \textsc{…}, \textbf{…}, \textit{…}.

\documentclass[margin,line]{res}
\usepackage[inline]{enumitem}
\setlist[itemize]{leftmargin=*}
\def\sectionfont{\scshape}

\begin{document}

Combine the good characteristics from both approaches; I want the first list to start at the same height as Languages".

\section{Languages}
\begin{tasks}[label = \textbullet,  after-item-skip = 0.5ex plus 0.5ex](2)

• The problem was just I left a \\ that you needed in your initial try. I removed it and changed a little the value of the key in charge of the inter-row skip, after-item-skip. The parameters are explained in § 4, pp.8-12 of the documentation. PLease see if my updated answer is OK. Καληνύχτα! – Bernard Jul 25 '16 at 0:51
