The package claims to do the wonder of placing a one-column text in a two-column document, without ejecting the page. This seems to work, but breaks when I try to place a figure within the strip environment (in an sigplanconf.cls style sheet.)

I am aware of the multicol package, but it does not like figures in it.

It would be much clearer if you supplied a (non) working example to make your question clearer.

But I would guess from your comment that you have put figure environment inside the strip. Floating environments are not likely to work in that context, Just use \includegraphics directly with no surrounding figure. If you want a caption use the (very small) capt-of package so you can go \captionof{figure}{the figure caption....} also within the strip
