I'm writing my CV using










\item[Line 1 \newline Line 2] Second column



I would like Line 1 to be on a line and Line 2 to be on another line, but \newline doesn't work, I do not get an error, simply the line doesn't break. Any ideas?

You could probably just set the item inside a small tabular using makecell:

enter image description here




  \item[{\makecell[lt]{First line \\ Second line}}] Second column

  \item[{\makecell[t]{First line \\ Second line}}] Second column


Note the use of extra braces {...} around \makecell to avoid confusion about the optional argument for \item and \makecell.
