Make a list consisting of multiple colomns

Postby rvdho » Thu Nov 27, 2014 11:51 am

Hi all,

Could you please help me. I want to create a list where each item is divided into two colomns, like in the figure I've added.
How I would want it to be
Capture.PNG (10.89 KiB) Viewed 1671 times

I tried using a tabular environment, but my text shifts above the item number.

  1. \begin{enumerate}[label*=4.\arabic*.]
  2. \setlength\labelsep{0.5cm}
  3. \setlength{\itemsep}{0pt}
  4. \setlength{\parskip}{0pt}
  5. \setlength{\parsep}{0pt}
  6. \setlength{\topsep}{0pt}
  7. \item \begin{tabular}{p{10cm} p{2cm}}
  8. This is the first explanation of a specific subject, which is longer than just one line & Category 1 \\\end{tabular}
  9. \item \begin{tabular}{p{10cm} p{2cm}} Again an explaination
  10. & Category 2\\\end{tabular}
  11. \end{enumerate}

I would really like to use the list because I can easily add an item and all item numbers change automatically as well as the references I make to different items.

Does anyone has an idea to solve this?
Thanks in advance

I am not quite sure how i could start here. Can you explain in more detail what you are trying to achieve? I think it will be easier to start knowing what the thing is doing and how it should be working.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
