Simple question. I feel like it should have a simple answer but I can't find anything.

The documentclass book (and default multicols) stretches content so that it fills the page. Now, I want to use this content in a document of mine that is typeset with the article documentclass.

If I use book and redefine the margins I get what I want, except that it changes \sections and \subsections, which doesn't look right for a formal lab report.

    @Ryan: In which way does changing the margins change the sections etc? You should give us an example – user31729 Nov 10 '14 at 17:13

    you can specify \flushbottom (in the preamble). the article class defaults to \raggedbottom unless twocolumn is in effect. – barbara beeton Nov 10 '14 at 17:13
  • @ChristianHupfer I guess he is talking of the numbering of sections, which will have a 0 in front. – Johannes_B Nov 10 '14 at 17:18
