# How to avoid page break after \end{multicols*}?

I am experimenting in LyX to create a page which has a single column and two column text.
I inserted the following TeX code in the file.

\begin{multicols*}{2}
\lipsum[1]
\columnbreak
\lipsum[2]
\end{multicols*}
\lipsum[3]


The problem I am facing is Lipsum 3rd paragraph is being created in a new page. How can I avoid this? I want all the three paragraphs in the same page(Paragraph 1 and 2 as two column and Paragraph 3 as a single column below the two column text)

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, they'll be marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). –  Joseph Wright Jun 28 '12 at 10:00
May I ask why you used initially the starred enviroment? –  Nikos Alexandris Sep 28 '12 at 12:55
@NikosAlexandris , I really don't remember now. I was learning the abcd... of TeX that time and was experimenting a lot. :-) –  jithinrj Jan 21 '13 at 12:47
@jithinrj eXperimenting... that's the key -- thanks :-) –  Nikos Alexandris Jan 21 '13 at 12:53
Use multicols in place of multicols*
