# Lyx - side-by-side figure inside two-column layoutt

I have created side-by-side images in Lyx using this link

It works just fine in 1-column article. But If I switch to two columns, images started to overflow page. I have set image scale for each of the images separately.

How to use images in two columns to be aligned, or some of them to be space across two columns?

I need this solution inside Lyx, so conversion into Tex and then modify Tex is not possible.

• The first part (two pictures in one column) seems to work for me. Can you provide a minimal working example? Sep 1, 2015 at 12:46
• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. Sep 1, 2015 at 12:57

• To make a float span the two columns, right click float: figure, choose Settings, and check the box for Span columns. Sep 2, 2015 at 13:59

1. Insert > Float > Figure.

2. Inside float figure: Insert > Box > Frameless.
