In my text I have several examples in parallel columns and I want to number the examples, how can I do it? I'm using the package parallel but I might use every package you suggest.

Using multicol and expex can give you the desired result, if I understand correctly what you need.

In you preamble:


And where you have the examples, just do something like this:

\a <example 1>

\a <example 2>

\a <example 3>

\a <example 4>

This will give you two separate columns. You can also use it with enumerate or itemize.

If you want to force a column break, just add \vfill\null \columnbreak wherever you want the break to happen.

I hope this helps.
