# Remove double margins for a single page?

I'm using the AIP template seen here, I need to be able to make it so I can return to normal margins for a single page or two and then return back. How can I achieve this?

\documentclass[aip,jmp,reprint]{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\preprint{AIP/123-QED}

• Can you give a little bit more information in form of a minimal working example? Dec 10, 2013 at 13:47
• Well, for starter, you could post the relevant part here, so everyone can test and compile directly. Furthermore, you can describe the desired result more precisely. I myself am not really sure i know what you want. Dec 10, 2013 at 14:19
• Could you define "normal margins"? Do you mean a single-column layout? If you would explain what exactly you're trying to achieve, maybe there are other solutions that are already available with the template?

• A minimal example could be just the \documentclass[..]{revtex4-1} line from the template, and a document environment with some text saying e.g. this should be one-column and this text on the next page should be two-column. It doesn't have to be a 'working' example in the sense that it does what you want, but it should be a 'starting' example, showing what you have, so you can point to what you want to change. Ideally a question should be self-contained, one shouldn't have to go to an external site to see the code. Dec 10, 2013 at 16:01
• It would also nice if you could rephrase your question and title, so that one doesn't have to read all the comments to find out what the question really is. Dec 10, 2013 at 16:03

With the possibility, that this is not what you want:

\documentclass[aip,jmp,reprint]{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
\preprint{AIP/123-QED}
\title[Sample title]{Sample Title}
\thanks{Footnote to title of article.}
\author{A. Author}

\newcommand{\testtext}{

}
\blindtext
\subsection{A subsection}

\blindtext
\onecolumngrid
\section{onecolumn}

\onecolumngrid
\section{again onecolumn}
\testtext
\testtext

\end{document}
