Hi, There has been some additions to itemize wrt columns. One problem with columns is that we have a 'cross page' and 'balancing' situation. The existing columns features has been improved a bit. That leaves the problem that mixing single and multi columns is not really tex's strong point. So, when Mikael and I were looking at one of his documents that mixes a lot of math into itemized situations, a different variant was made (ok, there was another reason but that's a bit technical). At that time, I had already adapted itemize to work a bit better with bTABLE and starttabulate (nesting, trial mode etc), think of \bTABLE \bTR \bTD \startitemize[a] \startitem \im{\sqrt{\frac{1}{x^4}}} \stopitem \startitem \startitemize[n] \startitem \im{\sqrt{\frac{1}{x^4}}} \stopitem \startitem \im{\sqrt{\frac{1}{x^4}}} \stopitem \stopitemize \stopitem \startitem \im{\sqrt{\frac{1}{x^4}}} \stopitem \stopitemize \eTD \eTR \eTABLE or with tabulate \startitemize[n] \starttabulate[k2] \NC \startitem test \stopitem \NC \startitem test \stopitem \NC \NR \NC \startitem test \stopitem \NC \startitem test \stopitem \NC \NR \stoptabulate \stopitemize so basically inside these tables items can be dealt with. Don't wonder too much how this translates into structure. So, back the columns, a logical next step was to add tabulated columns to itemize: \startitemizetable[n,four] \dorecurse{10}{ \startitem \im{\sqrt{\frac{1}{x^4}}} \stopitem \startitem \im{\sqrt{x^5}} \stopitem \startitem \im{\frac{x^5}{x^5}} \stopitem } \stopitemizetable or with Hans ps. The page columns also have some improvements but that's for next month.
