# How can I align two itemised lists of items in two columns?

I would like to list (itemise) some items and visualise them in two different column in Beamer.

I tried in this way:

\includegraphics[scale=0.45]{image}
\centering
\begin{columns}
\begin{column}{0.47\textwidth}
List1
\begin{itemize}
\scriptsize
\item item1
\item item2
\item item3
\item item4
\item item5
\end{itemize}
\end{column}
\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
List2
\begin{itemize}
\scriptsize
\item6
\item7
\end{itemize}
\end{column}
\end{columns}


Unfortunately it seems not working. I also tried to use Parallel but I had problem to itemise the elements of the two lists.

Any suggestions?

• Probably you can try with \begin{column}[t]. Like that, the two columns are top aligned with respect to each other. – leandriis Oct 9 at 19:59
• If I make your code compilable and use the t option for both \begin{column} commands, I get the following output: i.stack.imgur.com/IjdGU.png If this does not suit your needs, please add a sketch of the desired otput and/or make a complete and compilable minimal working example (MWE) that is closer to your actual document. – leandriis Oct 9 at 20:04
• Thanks leandriis. I think the problem could be an image because it does not align perfectly the text. I used \includegraphics[scale=0.45]{image} \centering – a.rimbaud Oct 9 at 20:10
• Please make a complete and compilable minimal working example (MWE) and add it to your question.. With the information you provided so far, it is impossible to guess what you are doing and why it is not working as expected. – leandriis Oct 9 at 20:12
• After completing your code fragment to the MWE I obtain expected result: a slide with image horsinatally centered and below it two vertically aligned lists (left with 5 items, right with two) since i consider @leandriis first comment. I have recent beamer and MIkTeX instalation. – Zarko Oct 9 at 20:35
