# How to set columns in LaTeX Seminar slide?

Even though I can use beamer to create presentation slide. But this time I only interested in using seminar.sty to write a slide for presentation, but failed to create a columns-like page.

Here is a simple example:

\documentclass{seminar}

\begin{document}
\begin{slide}

\begin{columns}
\begin{column}
Hello, world!
\end{column}

\begin{column}
How are you?
\end{column}
\end{columns}

\end{slide}
\end{document}


But I got this:

! LaTeX Error: Environment columns undefined.


I am interested in such a beautiful example, but I don't know the way to create.

• As far as I know, column and columns are defined in beamer but not in seminar. – user121799 Jun 13 '18 at 5:55
• Change seminar to beamer and slide to frame and probably add an optional argument with the width to the column environments. – cfr Jun 15 '18 at 2:17

I finally found minipage can do what columns do in beamer.

\begin{slide}

\begin{minipage}[t]{.49\textwidth}
\mybullet{In Seminar slide documentclass, \yell{minipage} can do what
\yell{coloumns} does in Beamer. }
\mybullet{The current sheet where tearing happens is called \yell{Harris layer}.}
\mybullet{Simulations is 2.5D: fields are 2D, particle motion is 3D.}
\end{minipage}

\begin{minipage}[t]{.49\textwidth}
\begin{figure}
\includegraphics[width=1\textwidth]{fig/fig_intro}
\caption{Harris layer configuration.}
\end{figure}
\end{minipage}

\mybullet{Seek the Lord diligently! The Lord will greatly bless you!}
\mybullet{At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.- John 8:9}

\end{slide}
