In two column mode abstract inserts a \section*{abstractname} and this disturbs the counter of minitoc. You can decrement the counter: \begin{abstract} \decrementstc and god said let there be light and there was light \end{abstract} (It looks like a bug to me, but the description regarding starred sections in the minitoc documentation is rather ...

this just forces text page floats to the right, \clearpage still flushes all floats to the first available column. \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \def\f{\begin{figure}\rule{1cm}{1cm}\caption{fff}\end{figure}} \def\t{one two three four five six sevn eight nine ten eleven} \def\tt{Red green \t. Blue yellow orange purple \t, \t, \t, \t.\par} \makeatletter ...

The class uses \LoadClass[fleqn]{article} to specify flush left equations, with no documented way of over-riding that. that is really the point of publisher specific classes, to remove flexibility to enforce a house style.

I think that you want to reduce the space between the text and the horizontal lines at the top and the bottom of the page, so that you have something like this: If this is what you are trying to do then you just need to specify the value of footskip and headsep when you load the geometry package. For the page above I used: ...

The documentation for the package does not make this very clear, but it seems that you need to enclose all of the environments it describes inside a paracol one: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{paracol} \begin{document} \begin{paracol}{2} \begin{leftcolumn*} \subsection{% Environments \texttt{leftcolumn} and\\ \texttt{rightcolumn}} The environments ...

The dual title in twocolumn mode causes the page breaks. Perhaps you'd just be interested in setting the title manually. Below I've taken the \maketitle constructions from the titling package code: \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{lipsum}% Just for this example \begin{document} \twocolumn[{ \begin{center} \LARGE First title \end{center} ...

Package algorithm2e does not allow H in twocolumn mode, regardless if single or double float. A little excerpt from the package file: \if@twocolumn\@latex@error{[H] in two columns mode is not allowed for algorithms}\fi% TODO: SCREAM if H in two colums! Bad thing is, for some reason two captions in an algorithm environment don't work. The solution can ...

You can use one of the hooks provided by titling and set up some commands to define things conveniently. I use \foreignauthor{} and \foreigntitle{} which you use to defined the English versions. Then \maketitle will do what you want, I think. \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{titling} \pretitle{\begin{center}\LARGE} ...

Try using the lscape and pdflscape packages (lscape is required by pdflscape). I'm not sure if you'll need to switch to single column first, if so, I'd do it before and after the landscape commands. Without a MWE from you I'm assuming you use multicols. Before the code below I'd put \end{multicols} and after the text below I'd restart the multiple columns ...

The simple answer is that neither balance nor multicol will work together with ftnright out of the box as all packages assume the standard LaTeX output routine in place so that they can modify it. In theory such things could coexist but in case of balancing it is not quite clear what the expected behavior should be (especially in case of multicol this is a ...

To get a line break between (some of) the subfigures, just provide a blank line where the break should occur -- no need for \\. By the way, I had to comment out the instruction \usepackage{stfloats} to get your code to compile. Do you really need this package? \documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran} \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} % added to make your file ...
