Here is a demonstration of principle. The idea is to reduce the remaining space on the page to a multiple of \baselineskip. Note that \baselineskip could change between the figure creation and final location (not likely unless you like to change font sizes). \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{environ} \usepackage{mwe} % skip to the next grid ...

You can use the strip environment, from the cuted package (in the shipunove bundle): \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{cuted} \begin{document} \lipsum[2] \begin{strip} \lipsum[3-4] \end{strip} \lipsum[5-8] \end{document} ...

You can archieve this for example by using minipages: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{float} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{blindtext} \begin{document} \noindent \begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth} \blindtext \end{minipage} \begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth} \begin{figure}[H] ...

Here is one option, where you could just decrease the inter-column spacing; Instead of a regular \tabcolsep, I've reduced that to 35% of \tabcolsep: \documentclass[10pt]{scrartcl} \usepackage[margin=25mm,paper=a4paper]{geometry} \usepackage{booktabs} \usepackage[colaction]{multicol} \usepackage{setspace} \usepackage{lipsum} \title{Table formatting} ...

Like this? \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage} \usepackage{blindtext} \begin{document} \section{A section} \subsection{B section} \begin{minipage}{\linewidth} \blindtext \end{minipage} \vfill \mbox{} \begin{minipage}{\linewidth} \blindtext[2] \end{minipage} \end{document} Disclaimer: Note that SE has decided not to ...

Update: This is another solution \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \addtolength{\columnsep}{1cm} \addtolength{\textwidth}{\columnsep} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \lipsum[1-20] \end{document} Here is a solution: we need to patch \@outputdblcol command that output twocolumn pages. \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{etoolbox} ...

After \maketitle add \onecolumn in the next line. This also works if you are using sig-alternate-05-2015.cls (which is compatible with acm_proc_article-sp.cls) where your class definition looks like this: \documentclass{sig-alternate-05-2015}.

The \dbltextfloatsep space is the space below the figure before the start of the columns it is not added separately to each column, it is added _after- latex has constructed a partial page box with the columns. It's natural length is used to determine the target height of the columns to go under the figure and any stretch is used to adjust any shortfall, but ...
