I'm trying to write some text in two columns on the titlepage, but unfortunately everytime the tabular part is on a new page with a blank page between. I guess it has something to do with \maketitle, but how do I change that in LyX?

P.S. Multicols doesnt work too




\subject{1. bla}

\date{vorgelegt am \today}


\publishers{\noindent Fakultät Wirtschaft \smallskip{}
Studiengang Wirtschaftsinformatik\smallskip{}
Kurs }

\author{von \smallskip{}


Verfasser: \\\ Ich      
Anschrift:\\\ myCompanyAddressStreet\\

The problem is that for the document class you use (I guess a KOMA class, report [scrrprt] or book [scrbook]), the stuff generated by \maketitle is put on a page by itself, so any material you add immediately after it will come on the following page.

A kind of hackish way of doing this is to add the tabular within the last element of the \maketitle. Of the things you included, the \publishers is the last, so you could add the tabular at the end of this, with some vertical space first, e.g.

Fakultät Wirtschaft \\
Studiengang Wirtschaftsinformatik \\
  Verfasser: & Ich   \\
  Ausbildungsbetrieb: & myCompany \\
  Anschrift: & myCompanyAddressStreet \\
  Betreuer: & myProf  \\
  Abgabedatum: & myEndDate 

Another way is to not use \author, title etc. and \maketitle, and instead create the titlepage manually.

Thank you! I'll try that tonight! You are right, I use scrbook. I should have posted that too – user1259201 Jul 20 '12 at 8:38
