You can use \begin{table*} ... \end{table*} to let a table span two columns. And to be honest, not much of your code is "needed to illustrate the current problem". For example, it has nothing to do with the SelfArx class you're using (and I first had to look for), and most of the other code you posted. Here's a much more minimal version of your code ...

Set the each of the blocks inside a minipage that is just wide enough to fit 50% of the text block minus half the width of the rule: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath,lipsum,calc} \begin{document} \lipsum[1] \noindent \makebox[\linewidth]{% \begin{minipage}[t]{\dimexpr0.5\linewidth-.2pt} \vspace{-\baselineskip} \begin{align*} ...

The package stfloats allows to have bottom two column floats: \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{stfloats} \usepackage{kantlipsum} \begin{document} \kant[1-3] \begin{figure*}[b] \centering \includegraphics[width=.8\textwidth,height=4cm]{example-image} \caption{A caption to this wonderful picture} \end{figure*} ...

It's not possible to tell with certainty why the long table isn't allowing a column break, since you've only provided some short fragments of that table. The code below implements the following suggestions: I use %% (double comment symbols) to comment out instructions that are counterproductive to getting your document typeset. Don't load both graphics ...

You could just use the command \twoclumn[] for this. I hope, I got you correct. % arara: pdflatex \documentclass[10pt,a4paper,twocolumn]{extbook} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \newcommand*{\dictchar}[1]{ \clearpage \twocolumn[ \centerline{\parbox[c][3cm][c]{2cm}{% \fontsize{24}{24} \selectfont ...

You have to use figure* here. Also reduce the width of minipages to \begin{minipage}{.0.48\textwidth}. And in \includegraphics the width can be \linewidth. Further, you may need the [t] alignment specifier for minipages and a \hfill in between the minipages. There is no need of using \captionof, use \caption straight away.. ...

The cuted package and it's strip environment provide the desired feature. (I reduced the height of the parbox however, since cuted seems to add a lot of vertical space.) \documentclass[10pt,a4paper,twocolumn]{extbook} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \usepackage{cuted} \newcommand{\dictchar}[1]{% \begin{strip} \centering ...

This may not be an ideal solution, but it works. \documentclass{scrreprt} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{multicol} \usepackage{hyperref} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \chapter{First} \begin{multicols}{2} \lipsum[1-6] \end{multicols} \chapter{Second} \begin{multicols}{2} \lipsum[7-12] \end{multicols} \end{document}

You can try using paracol package. It does pretty good job in making parallel multicolumn texts http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/paracol
