class and two columns there via "\twocolumn". It works fine mostly but in some instances of the texts involved I have the situation that part of the text of the left column is not put into the next line, and thus seen half into the right column.

Interestingly it seems that there is some connectionn to () there as it always happened with text put in paranthesis. (Body) ,....

Is this a known limitation there that () text is being problematic? And how can I circumvent this problem?

Edit:

AS asked in the comments. As it seems the probblem only happens when something inside () is at the end of a line (in this case "Longevity" reaches into the 2nd column).

You will see the problem replicated with/without ():

Since you're most likely going to use longevity quite a lot in this document, add

\hyphenation{lon-gev-i-ty}

to your document preamble. It will add the hyphenation pattern for longevity to the list of existing hyphenations:

enter image description here

Note that you may still receive overfull \hbox warnings, which depend on your paragraph construction. Typically these are removed when reformatting the paragraph text, perhaps using \raggedright or even including microtype.

Here is an example with full justification (top) and \raggedright (bottom):

  • and what can be done in the case of (BODY)? In the original text it had the same problem. – Thomas Jul 20 '14 at 20:14
  • @ThomasE.: What about attempting a \raggedright document layout? Columns are very narrow with your settings, making it difficult to find sufficient spacing to correct the layout. \raggedright will break a line if the subsequent word doesn't fit. The ragged2e package provides similar functionality with hyphenation support. – Werner Jul 20 '14 at 20:17

    raggedright corrected the problem tnx – Thomas Jul 20 '14 at 20:27
