I am preparing a paper for a conference that requires submissions in a two-column format and a fixed number of pages. During editing, it is much easier for me to view the paper with a single column per page, since it allows me to enlarge the text.
I could switch to a differnt style during editing, but then I would not know how many pages my paper has, which is an important consideration during editing.
An ideal solution would be to print each column in a single page, while keeping the exact column width and formatting. For example, if the actual page width is 8.5'', I would like to change it temporarily to 4.25'' and have each column displayed in a single page. Then, the number of pages would be exactly twice the number in the final paper.
Is there a way to do this without changing the conference style file too much?
