  • Thank you for your answer but actually this doesn't work. I have already tried but infact it seems to work only with the multicol package. – Andrea Angeletti Mar 23 at 17:09
  • Yes, that's why I said "related". Btw, you can always use multicols. – user156344 Mar 23 at 17:12
  • Yes I know, I have jus pointed it out, by the way I have already wrote a long document so I am not willing to switch to the multicolumn package now. – Andrea Angeletti Mar 23 at 17:24
  • I don't think it is that complicated. You only have to add a \usepackage line, and a pair of \begin{multicols}{2} \end{multicols} to the beginning and the end of your document... – user156344 Mar 23 at 17:25

Try this (less any of my typos):

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\mbox{}  % empty space for first column
\newpage % start next column
\lipsum
\end{document}
  • Any of a number of invisible items can be used, including \leavevmode, \null, \strut, and \hrule height0pt (which I like to think of as a horizontal \strut). – John Kormylo Mar 23 at 20:39
