I am writing a long document with memoir class and multicol package, mostly writing in 2 columns. I am trying to insert a framed text that spans across the two columns, but does not break the flow of text inside the columns. I can end the multicol, insert my framed text, and re-enter the multicol, but it breaks the flow of the text -- as in this answer.
Here is an image of what I am trying to achieve:
The text flows from 1's to 4's. The text of A's in the middle does not break the 1-4 flow. Is it possible to do so with multicol?
