I want to get article with two column abstract, spanning to the second page synchronously. The idea is to show original and translated abstracts. I use papacol package for this. The main body should also use two columns, and here is a problem.

  1. \twocolumn command makes unwanted new page. \let\clearpage\relax \twocolumn results in overlapped text. The result is:

1 1

  1. It is possible to place the whole article body in multicols environment, but I would not like it because of the floats usage. Here is the screen of the second page (without a figure) to show the desired view:

What is the way to get the page like in the second example, but without multicol ?

UPDATE #1

Is it possible to use paracol to get classical left-to-right text flow in columns ?


Minimal example code:

 
\documentclass[english,twocolumn]{paper}

\usepackage[T1,T2A]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenx}
\usepackage[english]{babel}

\usepackage{paracol}
\usepackage{tcolorbox}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\title{Example article with two column abstract}

\author{Author A.R.}

\onecolumn

\maketitle

\hrule width \hsize \kern 1mm \hrule width \hsize \kern 1mm

\begin{abstract}

\begin{paracol}{2}        
    \lipsum[1-5]
    \switchcolumn    
    \textit{\lipsum[1-4]}
\end{paracol}


\end{abstract}
\hrule width \hsize \kern 1mm \hrule width \hsize \kern 1mm

{
\let\clearpage\relax 
\twocolumn
}
\textbf{The dobule line above should split the abstract from the article body.}


\section{Introduction}

\subsection{Subsection Heading Here}

\lipsum[5-7]

\subsubsection{Subsubsection Heading Here}
