I would like to create a XeLaTeX layout where
multicol's columns (two in this case, no figures, text only) are tilted where they meet. The lines still should be ordinary lines below each other, but the start/end points of each line should glide a bit each line for it to look something like this:
xxxxxxxxxx xxxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxx xxxxxxxxx xxxxx xxxxxxxxx xxxxx SECTION xxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxx xxxxxxxxx xxxxx xxxxxxxxx xxxx SUBSECTION xxxx xxxxxxxxxx
So not the whole column is tilted, but one gets narrower while the other one gets wider.
I've seen examples using
\parshape, but those I found are based that one counts lines and more or less manually defines the shape. I also would need that LaTeX keeps the
multicol functionality (page breaks, text flow, ...) and does this automatically on each page for a longer chapter.
How do I create such a layout? If
multicol is not easy to mix with this layout, what would be an alternative?
