In the idxlayout manual I read that the memoir class with twocolumn options forces a page break after the index. Is there any way around this behavior? I would like the following to remain on one page, not three.

    When you use twocolumn, the only way to switch to one column is ejecting a page. – egreg Mar 4 '14 at 16:25
  • This is for the break before the index? When changing to columns=2, is still get three pages. I am looking for a small list of to do items just after the title, just before the start of the main text. – Marijnn Mar 4 '14 at 16:47

    Have you seen the todo package? – egreg Mar 4 '14 at 16:49
  • Thanks, a dedicated package is probably a better way. I think fixme looks nice for my purposes.. – Marijnn Mar 4 '14 at 17:20
  • fixme is very good for this and very powerful when you need it. – cfr Mar 5 '14 at 0:10

When you use the twocolumn option, the only possible way for switching to a one column format is starting a new page.

You might use the multicol package, instead, but probably the best strategy for the problem you're trying to solve is using the todo or fixme packages.
