# Aligning Enumerate and Itemize lists in minipages

This is my first post here, so if you have any improvements in general on how to format questions, let me know.

I am trying to create 2 columns (I have used minipages to define width) and then have a list on the left side and numbered list on right side.

However, when writing longer passages of text on the right side, it affects how the left side list lines up, and i would prefer them to work independently, so that the titles are on the same line.

In addition, if you know how to extend the length of the vline by a small margin to go below the last point of the numbered list, it would be appreciated.

\section*{Title}

\begin{minipage}{0.3\textwidth}%
\underline{\textbf{Title A}}
\begin{itemize}[leftmargin=*,noitemsep]
\item A
\item B
\item C
\end{itemize}
\end{minipage}%
\hfill\vline\hfill
\begin{minipage}{0.6\textwidth}%
\underline{\textbf{Title B}}
\begin{enumerate}[leftmargin=*,noitemsep]
\item Longer text causes issues as it pushes the itemize list downwards and now the point and number don't align as well as the underlined titles aren't aligning either
\item B
\item C
\end{enumerate}
\end{minipage}%


• Welcome to TeX.SE. Using \begin{minipage}[t] should align the titles. Adding a \strut on the last line will extend the vertical rule. FYI, while code snippets are useful in explanations, it is always best to compose a fully compilable MWE that illustrates the problem including the \documentclass and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

Set the minipages to have a [t]op anchor point, and add a strut on the first and last lines:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\section*{Title}

\begin{minipage}[t]{0.3\textwidth}%
\begin{itemize}[leftmargin=*,noitemsep]
\item A
\item B
\end{itemize}
\end{minipage}%
\hfill\vline\hfill
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.6\textwidth}%
