# Why article is not split into two columns

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{scimisc-cv}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\twocolumn
\begin{multicols}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAA}
\end{multicols}
\end{itemize}
\end{document}


I am trying to split this column in two-columns equally but why isn’t two-column working?

Using enumitem+ (multicol used by the user @Kubo) packages you can split equally! with the two options noitemsep, nolistsep.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}[noitemsep,nolistsep]
\begin{multicols}{2}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAA}
\end{multicols}
\end{itemize}

\end{document}

• Why? There is a screenshot. ..I have not put the package scimisc-cv because I have not .sty of this. – Sebastiano Aug 4 '20 at 9:21

You need to load the multicol-package and add a parameter so the environment knows it is supposed to use two columns. You don’t need \twocolumn if you use the \multicols-environment

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}
\begin{multicols}{2}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAAA}
\item \textbf {AAA}
\end{multicols}
\end{itemize}

\end{document}

• Thanks a lot for that but it's not split equally! The last side there is a blank! – Sagarkumar Zalavadiya Aug 3 '20 at 22:46
• Use Sebastianos additional parameters noitemsep and nolistsep with enumitem. I was was quicker, but his answer is better. – Kubo Aug 3 '20 at 22:50
• @Kubo You has been very good....and I have upvoted you. – Sebastiano Aug 3 '20 at 22:51
