I'm looking to create a document divided into two columns:

the first column (left) being dedicated to text and the right column to images and graphs (like Spivak's Calculus, as an example). Whenever I fulfil the left column I should expect the text to remain at the left column of the next page and not writing on the right column.

I know how to make two columns in latex using mulicols , but it would be non-practical to break columns.

    You'd better use single column and a larger \marginparwidth. – Bernard Jan 24 '17 at 21:47
  • @ChristianHupfer I tried 'paracols' but the columns are not parallel. Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong? I just did the simplest code using 'paracol', 'leftcolumn*' and 'rightcolumn*' – Tmvaz Jan 24 '17 at 21:56
  • @Bernard , but if I change the margin, doesn't it mean that I can't use the margin for drawing graphs? I need the text to have that margin, yes, but I also want to use that empty space for graphing. Thanks! – Tmvaz Jan 24 '17 at 22:02
