Apparently there is a known issue with using
mdframed inside a
multicol environment. For me it seems to work fine including page breaks, but column breaks act all funny and typically push the entire frame to column 2 instead of splitting it like I want.
I've been trying to decipher the manual, but it makes no sense to me. Specifically in chapter 10, Examples, there is an example on page 32 (example 2) that shows exactly my failed situation and seemingly another on page 33 (example 3) that is working. I can't make out what the difference is or how to code it so that it works.
Can anybody offer insight in English that makes sense as to what the key is to getting the effect of a framed box to split over a multi-page multi-columned environment?
Edit: The break points must be determined automatically as my content is auto-generated.
