# Numbering examples in parallel

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:

\usepackage{expex}
\usepackage{multicol}


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

\begin{multicols}{2}
\pex
\a <example 1>

\a <example 2>

\a <example 3>

\a <example 4>
\xe
\end{multicols}


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.
