This isn't too smart about multi-line interruptions near a page break, or interruptions too close together. Commented out you will see some code that records the vertical start and end positions in a .pos file at the end of the run, this could be used on a later pass to automatically move things around but that gets tricky and unstable, and possibly for ...

Put these lines in your preamble: \usepackage{etoolbox} \AtBeginEnvironment{itemize}{\begin{multicols}{2}} \AtEndEnvironment{itemize}{\end{multicols}} This will change all itemize environments in to two columns (assuming that is what you want). \documentclass{article} \usepackage{etoolbox} ...

You should be able to do this using the rotating package's sidewaystable environment: \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{rotating} \usepackage{booktabs} \usepackage{array} \usepackage{caption} \usepackage{kantlipsum} % for dummy text \begin{document} \begin{sidewaystable} \centering \begin{tabular}{*{22}{c}} \toprule A & B & C & D ...

You may want to take a look at the paracol package. Once loaded, you can execute commands such as \begin{paracol}{3} % specify three columns... <text in first column> \switchcolumn <text in next column> \switchcolumn <text in next column> \switchcolumn <text in next, i.e., first column> ... \end{paracol}

Put the title material in the optional argument to \twocolumn. In the example I use only the specific packages needed. The only point to remark is the additional pair of braces because you have [] in the code. \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{array,url,kantlipsum} % \Mark is probably provided by spconf, that I don't have ...

Here is my code. it works for IEEE journal template (two columns journal template, bare_jrnl_compsoc, bare_jrnl, and so on). So one page-wide figure is in two columns setting paper. \begin{figure*} \center \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{AAA.eps} \caption{PRF and pulses number comparison with eigenwaveform.} \label{AAA} \end{figure*} Hope ...

I've defined a new option for numbers, called outside. It prints numbers in the left margin if you are on the left column and in the right margin if you are on the right column. This is the relevant code: \makeatletter \lst@Key{numbers}{none}{% \let\lst@PlaceNumber\@empty \lstKV@SwitchCases{#1}% {none&\\% ...

The error happens when \pr@\end@dblfloat is being executed, which uses \end@dblfloat. Let's compare the definitions of \end@dblfloat in the kernel and in fixltx2e: latex.ltx \def\end@dblfloat{% \if@twocolumn \@endfloatbox \ifnum\@floatpenalty <\z@ \@largefloatcheck \@cons\@dbldeferlist\@currbox \fi \ifnum \@floatpenalty =-\@Mii ...

There's nothing special to do: just enclose the \includegraphics in braces, so the ] in its optional argument is not mistaken for the closing one of the optional argument to \twocolumn: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \begin{document} \twocolumn[% {\includegraphics[width=12cm]{foo.png}}% ] \end{document} Don't forget to protect the end ...

memoir offers facilities which I think provide the information you want (p25 of the documentation). \documentclass[12pt,twocolumn]{memoir} \usepackage{lipsum} \settypeoutlayoutunit{mm}% note: needs to come *first* to have any effect (documentation is wrong) \typeoutlayout \typeoutstandardlayout \begin{document} \lipsum \end{document} Then the output ...

Yes, you are right; they are basically the same; the widetext package defines its widetext environment using strip from cuted.sty, but adds the rules. In fact, the author of widetext says in the .sty file: %% This package just defines the widetext environment and the rules. The other difference is that widetext gives you indentation for the first line ...

Double column floats always go on the next page at the earliest (they can't be placed on the current page as the first column may already have been set full height, so in a real document you just need to move the figure* environment earlier in the source, so that it is seen before the text that ends on that page. In the rare cases that you want the float at ...

Also IMHO, it's better left some margins than do this. But said that, you can obtain some similar to you example adding a phantom lettrine at the beginning of each page. In this MWE, the macro \stapler must be inserted after the last word of each page.(When the page end with an automatic hyphen, you can change this a manual hyphen followed by \stapler.). ...

I don't think you have a much better option than this. Btw, you seem to use q_A for two different things. \documentclass[twocolumn]{ltxdoc} \usepackage{amsmath} \begin{document} $$\sum_{q_\mathrm{tot}=0}^{Q_A+Q_B-2}\sum_{q_A=0}^{q_\mathrm{tot}}{\textstyle\binom{Q_A-1}{q_A}\binom{Q_B-1}{q_B}}x^{q_\mathrm{tot}},$$ where ...

This is a way to span the tikzpicture across two column. adjustbox package is used where the width is set to \linewidth for the span. width=\columnwidth would back to regular result. Code \documentclass[twocolumn,11pt]{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage{lipsum,adjustbox} \usetikzlibrary{calc,positioning} \begin{document} \definecolor ...

For the main toc Please read carefully again the linked answer and the KOMA-Script documentation1): By default in scrbook (and scrreprt) the toc is set in onecolumn modus. Only, when you want to have it in two columns, you need \unsettoc{toc}{onecolumn}. So, leaving it out is the solution here … For the minitoc Use \setchapterpreamble2). Note, you must ...

Your problem can be solved with “widetext.sty”. This package mimicing the mechanism with the same name from RevTeX4 was written by Anjishnu Sarkar. Alas, the original home went away. Luckily, we can get a copy from a svn site of Einstein Toolkit, because they have used it for a document (direct link): ...

You could use the \splitrule macro of the mathtools package to split the numerator term into two parts. In the example below, that's what's done in the first equation. In the second equation, I suggest applying a few more modifications; adopt them as you see fit. \documentclass[a4paper,twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{mathtools} \begin{document} With just ...

Just in case you want to try the multienum package. MWE \documentclass{article} \usepackage{multienum} \newenvironment{multiitem}{% \multienumerate\renewcommand{\labelname}{\textbullet}% }{% \endmultienumerate% } \begin{document} \begin{multiitem} \mitemxx{1}{2} \mitemxx{3}{4} \mitemxx{5}{6} \mitemxx{7}{8} \mitemxx{9}{10} \end{multiitem} ...

I'll reproduce the same problem than Lars, but with a different file as \input. It seems that in ConTeXt, as soon as \interlinespace is set, it pretty much takes over the whole document, regardless whether the reset option is specified later on. If this issue in fact, turns out to be a bug, I can't answer, but I can answer the question with a simple DEK's ...

Your method won't work for thanks. Follow the method described here: \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \title{Something} \author{Name\thanks{}} \date{\today} \twocolumn[ \begin{@twocolumnfalse} \maketitle \begin{abstract} {\lipsum[1]} \end{abstract} \end{@twocolumnfalse} ] { ...

Here is one option using a stationary \captionof{table}{<caption>} (from caption or capt-of) and providing a manual split across table entries from one column to the next: \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{lipsum,caption,graphicx,tabularx} \begin{document} \lipsum[1-5] \begin{figure*}[ht] \centering ...

Column mode changes of LaTeX (without packages) are limited: Mode switches \onecolumn, \twocolumn start a new page. \twocolumn allows one column material at the top in the optional argument at least. Maximal number of columns is two. Package multicol implements several improvements: Column mode switches in the same page. More than two columns. ...

This is a bug in revtex: figures should never break like that, you can work-around it by adding a minipage. Also never use [h] LaTeX normally warns about that and changes it to [ht] but better to include p as otherwise going to the end of the document is the most likely result, \documentclass[10pt, aps, prb, twocolumn]{revtex4-1} ...

May be this is what you are after: \documentclass[11pt,twocolumn,conference]{IEEEtran} \usepackage{amsmath,array,graphicx} \usepackage{kantlipsum} \begin{document} \kant[1-2] \begin{table}[htb] \caption{hello2 testing} \label{1234} \resizebox{\columnwidth}{!}{% \begin{tabular}{c*{5}{>{$}c<{$}}} & \text{LfdR} & \text{KLSRf} ...

The cuted package (from the sttools bundle) can temporarily leave two columns mode with its strip environment. An example with the equation entered in the second column: \documentclass[twocolumn]{ltxdoc} \usepackage{mathtools, cuted} \usepackage{lipsum, color} \begin{document} \lipsum[1-2] \lipsum[1] \textsf{\color{red}Equation entered here: } ...

balance redefines \cleardoublepage so emptypage does nothing.
