I am experimenting in LyX to create a page which has a single column and two column text.
I inserted the following TeX code in the file.


The problem I am facing is Lipsum 3rd paragraph is being created in a new page. How can I avoid this? I want all the three paragraphs in the same page(Paragraph 1 and 2 as two column and Paragraph 3 as a single column below the two column text)

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, they'll be marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

  • @NikosAlexandris , I really don't remember now. I was learning the abcd... of TeX that time and was experimenting a lot. :-)
