As shown above, one line starts in a normal line. Then I use a column. Then the second line is coming from the column. But I want to have these two lines to start from the same position. Please any one help here. The code used in beamer here.


\begin{itemize}
\item Line starts in a normal
\end{itemize}
\begin{columns}[c]
\column {0.5\textwidth}
\begin{itemize}
\item Line starts in a column
\end{itemize}
\end{columns}


Thanks

By default, the margins around columns are different than for normal text. However with the onlytextwidth option you can make them the same:


\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item Line starts in a normal
\end{itemize}
\begin{columns}[c,onlytextwidth]
\column{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{itemize}
\item Line starts in a column
\end{itemize}
\end{columns}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
