# How can I align the bottom of two columns in a same page with multicol?

I would like to align horizontally the bottom of two columns in a same page in a document with multicol. Apparently there is a recurrent minimal difference between the bottom alignment of the columns.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\begin{multicols}{2}
\lipsum[1-5]
\par\end{multicols}

\end{document}

• You mean align vertically, right? You want both columns to end at the same vertical position? That would imply balancing, which multicol already does... – Werner Nov 17 '17 at 2:10
