I am writing an article in twocolumn format, not using multicols, but including the option in the documentclass itself. Now I need to insert some figures, preferably in a subplot like format, 2x2 or 2x3 perhaps, spanning a single column.
Tried multicols. To my utter dismay it doesn't seem to support twocolumn option. Tried subfigure/subfig. Couldn't make it work. Minipage code looks clumsy. Can't understand how subfloat/subcaption works.
Can someone help me out please, alongwith a preamble of exactly what packages are needed to do this?
