I've been using the
multicol package lately because I was trying to typeset content in two columns and I like minimalist solutions.
However I've been having trouble trying to force content to stay in one of the two columns only. But I've seen this behavior occurring:
- If the left column is shorter than a page, using
\columnbreakis enough and it will force the rest of the content to the right column. For example: How do I force a column-break in a multi-column page?
- If the content is longer than a page, though, using this command won't bring any results (except for the last page/part of the content). The command is ignored, and the first column will use the second until the first condition is satisfied again, i.e. the content is shorter than a page.
How can I force the content to stick to the first (left) column until
\columnbreak (or a similar command) is issued and only then start at the top of the second column? Or am I using the wrong package for this sort of task?
