# No page break after index with idxlayout

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.

\documentclass[oneside,twocolumn]{memoir}

\usepackage[columns=1]{idxlayout}
\makeindex
\title{Title}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\printindex
\index{Hi}{Hello}
\end{document}

• 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.
