If I want to prevent latex from putting two (short) paragraphs on different columns, is there something similar to \nopagebreak that will let me do this?

    AFAIK columns are handled like different pages and so \nopagebreak should do what you want. May 20, 2011 at 9:21
  • @Martin I couldn't get \nopagebreak to work, but maybe I just didn't insist on it enough. May 20, 2011 at 9:38
  • You could place the paragraphs into a {minipage}{\columnwidth} environment to prevent page or column breaking between or inside them. May 20, 2011 at 9:42
  • @Martin Thanks! But shouldn't you last comment be an answer? May 20, 2011 at 11:04

AFAIK columns are handled like different pages and so \nopagebreak should do what you want.

However, could simply wrap the paragraphs into \begin{minipage}{\columnwidth} ... \end{minipage} to prevent page or column breaking between or inside them. This should work fine as long you don't have footnotes in the paragraphs which would be placed at the bottom of the minipage.
