I am working on a document, which uses multicolumns. I am also using several boxes (Minipage, Simple frame) as well. The problem is: everytime a box -which is near to the end of a column- doesn't fit in that column where it has to be, Lyx automatically transfers it to the next column and leaves the previous column with a huge gap. Is there any way to prevent this by splitting the frames?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I think this is related to the following issue: tex.se – BernS Aug 4 '11 at 9:54
the documentation of mdframed says that it isn’t possible to use the multicolumn environment =( -package "framed" doesnt work either- – Massimo Aug 4 '11 at 11:41
I think that then there is no "easy" solution for your problem. One thing might help: not using frames, but groups with other formatting could be a workaround. – BernS Aug 4 '11 at 12:29
mdfamed and multicol save the contents in a savebox and split them. The new version is able to work with two column. The algorithm isn't compatible. – Marco Daniel Aug 4 '11 at 17:01
If (as seems likely) this question gets closed, it's just a way of indicating to casual passers-by that we don't yet have enough information to help you. If you edit your question to include an MWE (as Werner suggests), and/or explain more carefully what you are trying to do (as it seems quite specialised) then we may be able to help you find a solution. As it is, it's hard to tell what would help so the question will (probably) be closed until we can get some clarification. – Loop Space Sep 13 '11 at 19:45
