I have seen several questions like this and the corresponding answers, whereas this is the most promising. However that aligns vertically the top of both lists. I would like each item of the list to align to the corresponding item on the other list, like the first with the first, the second with the second, and so on.

Here is the MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{emoji} %requires compilation with Lua(La)TeX
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{array, xltabular,enumitem}
\usepackage[left=2.00cm, right=3.00cm, top=1.00cm, bottom=1.00cm, includefoot]{geometry}

% from the answer of Stefan Kottwitz on the linked question
\makeatletter
\newcolumntype{Y}{>{\@minipagetrue}X}
\newcolumntype{P}[1]{>{\@minipagetrue}p{#1}}

\begin{document}

            \item Ich kann lineare Gleichungen (und Gleichungssysteme) lösen.
            \item Ich kann Binomische Formeln nennen und anwenden.
            \item Ich kann lineare Funktionen anhand von Funktions-gleichungen zeichnen bzw. vom Graphen die Funktionsgleichung ablesen.
        \end{itemize} & &%
        \begin{itemize}
            \item S. 48
            \item S. 48
            \item S. 49
        \end{itemize}\\
        \hline
    \end{xltabular}
    
\end{document}

Is there a way to do it?

EDIT:

After trying leandriis' solution, I have this MWE:

Now the problem is in the second "block" last column. With a \newline in one of the cells, the bullet doesn't line up with the corresponding bullet in the first column.

    What kind of output do you expect? Probably a sketch would help in order to clarify your requirements. As far as I can tell from the code, you should end up with both lists being aligned to the top of their respective cells. Do you instead for example want the third item in both cells to appear at the same vertical position, as for example shown here: i.stack.imgur.com/K045H.png? – leandriis Apr 5 at 14:55
  • @leandriis That's exactly what I wanted. Sorry I didn't clarify good enough. Actually, you know what? I'll edit the question to clarify. And yes, I would have been happy to post a sketch, but I don't know how to do it (at least not as nice as yours: I would have to do it by hand). But you nailed it. – Andyc Apr 5 at 15:17

The following might serve as a place to start from. (Due to the lack of a font compatible with the emoji package, I replaced the emojis with the corresponding icons from the fontawesome5 package. Feel free to revert the change.)

In order to loally remove the hanging indentation, for example from the bold "headers", you can wrap them in a \multicolumn.

  • OK, so instead of using an itemize you write each line in a different cell, which is obviously quick and easy and I kind of like it. However, because this was a MWE, the actual document will be longer (think of a repetition of this "block" with more text to it) and I have the problem that one of the rows in the first column before the itemization (where it now says "Dein Fundament") is long and breaks. With the \hangindent they will get indented too, and unfortunately not in a way that looks nice (the indentation of the width of \textbullet doesn't match anything of the first line). – Andyc Apr 5 at 17:35
  • I sure could have said that in the question, but I was afraid that my MWE wouldn't be so minimal any more. – Andyc Apr 5 at 17:37
  • There's an easy fix for that as well. I updated my answer to include a suggestion for this, as well. – leandriis Apr 5 at 17:56
  • That fixes it indeed. Now just one more minor problem. If one of \myitems has a \newline in it, then it won't line up properly with the first column anymore. I tried to use makecell and break the line with \\` instead, but apparently makecell and xltabular don't get along very well (I get a Misplaced \noalign error). The idea of makecell would be nice to add a padding to all the cells, which would add some spaces between the \myitems as well. Sure there's another way to do that. Or not use xltabular but longtable instead, maybe? – Andyc Apr 5 at 18:53

    To overcome this alignment issue, use \begin{xltabular}{\textwidth}{| >{\hangindent=\hangwidth\RaggedRight\arraybackslash}X | c | >{\RaggedRight\arraybackslash}p{5cm} |}. As a side effect, you will also loose the vertically centered column headers. If you wish to keep them, use \multicolumn{1}{>{\RaggedRight\arraybackslash}m{5cm}|}{Info und Übungen im LB Fundamente 9} – leandriis Apr 6 at 17:40
