I'm working with the
elsarticle class, available here. I have a lot of figures, and it seems like the class is using something equivalent to
multicol to encourage columns to be of equal lengths within any given page. This is resulting in some really horrible looking pages such as those shown in the screenshots, which show two consecutive pages.
It would be preferable in the attached examples if some of the text from the second page filled up below the right column of the first page to bring it down to the bottom of the first page.
I thought if I was using
multicol myself and switched to
multicol* I could at least see if turning off column equalization helped, but I can't find where to do this in
Also, if I'm totally barking up the wrong tree here and there's a much better way to make the text fit in around the images, that would be great.
