Beside of the figure* float, that have the already mentioned inconvenient that should be in the top of a page, you can use cuted to show the figure at any place on double-column pages. Note that cuted is not fully compatible with floats, so you should use some package as capt-of for captions without a figure environment. Note also that text flow in this way ...

figure*-environments will always be placed at earliest on the next page. So you either need to move the code in your document. Or you can try the stfloats which will place the figure on the current page if it is defined in the first column. \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage[showframe]{geometry}% http://ctan.org/pkg/geometry \usepackage{lipsum}% ...

If it is only about the picture and it should not be floatable you can also try this (it will force(!) the picture to the top by definition): \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} \newcommand\ImageOnTop[2][]{% \def\toppic{\includegraphics[#1]{#2}\vspace{2em}} \twocolumn[\toppic] } \begin{document} ...

The big problem with your idea is the way, LaTeX is building the page. If you have two colums on the page, LaTeX has to calculate it. You want to end the "two column mode", change to one column to add your footnote or footnotes. There are a lot of things influencing the result, like the length of the paragraphs, the length of the footnotes, that causes ...

There are different approaches. The primitive ones consist of having a broad margin and using \marginpar (included in LaTeX) or \marginnote (there is a package marginnote). You could improve marginpar by using the marginfix package. A little -- not much -- better is the technical approach of tufte latex, there are even some documentclasses. Well, the ...

Assuming you want every new concept to start at a new line, you can do like this. \documentclass{sig-alternate-05-2015} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \patchcmd{\ccsdesc@parse}{\textbullet}{\par\noindent\textbullet}{}{} \makeatother \begin{document} \begin{CCSXML} <ccs2012> <concept> ...

One could align the top lines with \strut, both times typeset in \normalsize: \strut\uline{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. and \captionabove{{\normalsize\strut}\uline{Table caption}} (Please note that I changed \underline to \uline additionally (so both times \uline is used) since the outcome is slightly different.) Your ...

Use minipage instead of columns and column environment. use hspace{0.5cm} in between two minipage. After minipage environment command use vspace{-0.1cm} in first minipage and use vspace{0.5cm} in the second minipage and compile your code you will be getting the following.

The columns has an option for that, \begin{columns}[onlytextwidth,T] \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{default} \usecolortheme{default} \usefonttheme{professionalfonts} \let\familydefault\rmdefault \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{} \setbeamertemplate{caption}[numbered] \setbeamertemplate{frametitle}[default][center] \usepackage{tikz} ...

I have no problem with the following code. Note that twocolumn should not be issued. \documentclass[5p,times]{elsarticle} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \begin{frontmatter} \title{Title} \author{So Nia} \address{Department, University} \ead{so.nia@somewhere.xyz} \begin{abstract} \lipsum*[2] \end{abstract} \end{frontmatter} \section{Start} ...
