You should take into account How to keep a constant baselineskip when using minipages (or \parboxes)? and use \parbox[t]. Here's an implementation that also takes into account the possibility that the left box has more lines than the right box. \documentclass[10pt]{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{forloop} \usepackage{geometry} ...

Not precisely what the O.P. wants to have (not twocolumn mode and automatically), but parallel with parallel package: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{parallel} \usepackage{mathtools} \usepackage{amsthm} \newtheorem{definition}{Definition} \newtheorem{example}{Example} \begin{document} \begin{Parallel}{0.4\textwidth}{0.4\textwidth} \ParallelLText{% ...

As the two column float has to span the top of the following page, and (in latex 2015 release, or with fixltx2e with older format) all floats are kept in order, and so the single column floats have to come after that, I do not see how you can avoid a lot of white space after the first section, however you can do \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} ...

You mention no concern about float numbering, so my suggestion would be to forego any kind of floating for the single-column figures. For this, use the [H] float specifier: \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{lipsum} %used to generate filler text \usepackage{afterpage,float} \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} \begin{document} \section{Section with ...

This was a bug (or rather, a documented limitation) in latex which was fixed if you loaded the fixltx2e package, and is fixed by default in LaTeX 2015/01/01.

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \begin{document} \begin{figure*} \centering \includegraphics[height=3cm]{example-image-a}\quad \includegraphics[height=3cm]{example-image-b}\par\medskip \includegraphics[height=3cm]{example-image-c} \caption{a figure with three subfigures} \end{figure*} \end{document}

There couple of issues with your current format. If the entirety of your document is two-columned, I suggest to drop the idea of multi-column in the way you did it and instead, try twocolumn as option of the documentclass. This means: \documentclass[twoside, twocolumn]{article}. Once you do this, you can simply switch from sidewaystable* to sidewaystable ...

The CVPR template provides egpaper_final.tex and egpaper_for_review.tex. The main difference between the two is that the latter (review) version activates the condition \cvprfinalcopy (which sets \cvprfinaltrue). Setting \cvprfinalfalse (the default) in your preamble (or commenting out \cvprfinalcopy) will insert the "blue numbers on the sides of the ...

Another relatively simple approach based on use of minipages and TikZ node: Code: \documentclass[10pt]{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{tikz,calc}% <-- added \usepackage{geometry} \usepackage{ragged2e} \geometry{a4paper, twocolumn, columnsep=10mm, top=10mm, left=10mm, right=10mm, bottom=10mm, headsep=0mm, footskip=0mm} \newlength\ShortCell ...
