In a twocolumn document, I would like chapter headings that span on two columns but don't introduce a page break:

  • section doesn't introduce a page break, but it doesn't span on two columns;
  • chapter spans on two columns but introduces a page break (even double page break);
  • I can't use multicols because I'm using floats in my columns.
  • You're out of luck, I'm afraid.

  • Do I get a badge for exhausting @egreg's well of TeX wisdom?

  • Ask the LaTeX3 team to push development of xor. ;-)

  • I guess I'll have to give up on my floats then… they're really causing too much trouble :(

I'm afraid you're out of luck: twocolumn doesn't balance columns, only multicols does. But floats are not allowed in multicols.

We all hope the development of xor (the new output routine for LaTeX3) can be pushed forward.
