I want to generate an environment that allows to establish the number of columns.

I tried the following environment but I do not know if the \AtBeginEnvironment commands are compatible with \newenvironment

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. Sep 24, 2018 at 4:28
  • If I understand well, you're probably after the functionalities of the tasks package.

  • Have a look at the paralist package, which offers some extra lists (less space, in-line, etc.).

Just wrap multicols around itemize:

\usepackage{lipsum} % for context




\item abc
\item def
\item ghi
\item jkl
\item mno



enter image description here

You should also consider the tasks package.
