\documentclass{article} \usepackage{multicol,amsmath} \begin{document} \begin{multicols}{2} \begin{enumerate} \item $\begin{Bmatrix} \begin{picture}(0,0)\put(5,-8){\boldmath\large$J_1 $}\end{picture} && \begin{picture}(0,0)\put(5,-8){\boldmath\large$0\$}\end{picture} &\\ \phantom{\lambda_1}& \phantom{\lambda_1}& ...

In order to have the first lines at the same height as in normal setting, multicol sets \splittopskip to \topskip. This means that TeX will add glue equal to \topskip-<height of first line> above each column, ensuring they will be at the same reciprocal height, unless it's bigger than \topskip (in this case zero glue would be inserted. In your ...

You can try the paracol package instead of multicol. In this way you can write all your questions on the first column and then, after issuing \switchcolumn you can start writing the code for each page in the second column, for example {\hfill USE THIS SPACE FOR FIGURING}\vfill{\hfill\small GO ON THE NEXT PAGE} for all pages and {\hfill USE THIS ...

I blame Frank:-) That is, I think the problem is unrelated to longtable, but rather that it is dangerous to nest multicols environments. If you use the inner multicols to hold the longtable before starting the outer one, and save the result in a box to add to the float. it works better: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{longtable} \usepackage{multicol} ...

I was curious about whether this could be done with flowfram. This is much better than the crude use of longtable I used before. (Whether or not it has anything to be said for it in light of karkoeller's answer, I leave as an exercise for the reader.) flowfram allows you to basically break up the body of the document into different frames and to specify how ...

Here's one... round-about way - setting the first paragraph as part of the chapter header: \documentclass[12pt,twocolumn]{memoir}% http://ctan.org/pkg/memoir \chapterstyle{bianchi} \usepackage{lipsum}% http://ctan.org/pkg/lipsum \usepackage{ragged2e}% http://ctan.org/pkg/ragged2e \let\oldafterchaptertitle\afterchaptertitle% Store \afterchaptertitle ...

Here I use a TABstack. For the three normal sized ones, the syntax was interchangeable, except for putting the environment contents into the \braceMatrixstack argument. I did need to set up the horizontal intercolumn gap 2ex in advance. For the large matrix, I just made the letters \LARGE which took care of the vertical requirement. I did need to add a ...

I'm surprised this works. The actual location of the origin isn't usually fixed until the picture is completed and the current bounding box is fit into the text area. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \lipsum[1] \begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay] \coordinate (here) at (0,0); \draw (current ...

Here is my code. it works for IEEE journal template (two columns journal template, bare_jrnl_compsoc, bare_jrnl, and so on). So one page-wide figure is in two columns setting paper. \begin{figure*} \center \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{AAA.eps} \caption{PRF and pulses number comparison with eigenwaveform.} \label{AAA} \end{figure*} Hope ...

The problem doesn't come from multicol itself : The minipage environment eat all space around multicol, and the fcolorbox add some spurious space : \documentclass[10pt]{article} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{multicol} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{calc} \setlength{\fboxsep}{3mm}\setlength{\fboxrule}{1pt}% \setlength{\multicolsep}{20pt} ...
