I'm trying to create a simple 2 pages document in landscape format, with 3 columns on each page.

I'm trying the \Ncolumn{3} command of package flowfram because multicols refuses float figures inside columns.

Currently my draft is:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[margin=1cm,landscape]{geometry}

\usepackage[draft]{flowfram}
\ffvadjustfalse
\setlength{\columnsep}{1cm}
\Ncolumn{3}

\usepackage{fontspec,xltxtra,xunicode}
\defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text}
\setmainfont{Linux Libertine O}

\usepackage{eurosym}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage{color,graphicx}
\graphicspath{{images/}}

\usepackage[french]{babel}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-2]
\framebreak

\lipsum[1-2]
\framebreak

\lipsum[1-2]
\framebreak

\clearpage

\lipsum[1-2]
\framebreak

\lipsum[1-2]
\framebreak

\lipsum[1-2]
\framebreak

\end{document}

I expected 2 pages with 3 columns on each, instead I'm stuck with 3 pages with 2 columns plus a blank in the middle on each.

Any idea how to fix that?

There seems to be some incompatibility between fontspec and flowfram, if you change the order of loading, so fontspec is loaded before flowfram, it works.

Unrelated note: I don't think there is any point in loading both color and xcolor, so you can remove the former from your document.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[margin=1cm,landscape]{geometry}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage[draft]{flowfram}
\ffvadjustfalse
\setlength{\columnsep}{1cm}
\Ncolumn{3}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-4]

\end{document}
