# How do I write multicol in Lyx on the title page?

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

\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}

\title{randomTitle}

\subject{1. bla}

\date{vorgelegt am \today}

\begin{doublespace}

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

\author{von \smallskip{}
\\
user1259201}

\maketitle

\begin{tabular}{ll}
Verfasser: \\\ Ich
Ausbildungsbetrieb:\\\myCompany

Betreuer:\\\myProf
Abgabedatum:\\\myEndDate
\end{tabular}

\end{titlepage}

\end{document}

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

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.

\publishers{%
Fakultät Wirtschaft \\
Studiengang Wirtschaftsinformatik \\
Kurs\\[2cm]
\begin{tabular}{ll}
Verfasser: & Ich   \\
Ausbildungsbetrieb: & myCompany \\

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