Im a beginner in LaTeX, trying to write a document in acm two column format. In the first page, the second column collides with the title:

Second column colliding with title

I found some code about changing the column start with

\vspace{1cm}

Or similars but it didnt help. Also, i figure the template would probably deal with that automatically(?)

What am i doing wrong?

Here is my LaTeX document:

\documentclass[acmlarge, twocolumn]{acmart}
\usepackage{lipsum}


%opening
\title{My big and fancy title: wow, much information but still concise. So beautiful.}
\author{Marco A. B Montevechi Filho}
\settopmatter{printacmref=false}
\settopmatter{printfolios=false}

\makeatletter
\renewcommand\@formatdoi[1]{\ignorespaces}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
    
    \begin{abstract}
        
        \textbf{Abstract:} \lipsum[10]
        
    \end{abstract}
    
    \maketitle
    
    \section{Introduction}
    \subsection{Overview}
    
    \lipsum[10-100]
    
    \subsection{Subsection}
    
\end{document}

  • Searching in overleaf i changed the documentclass to \documentclass[acmtog]{acmart} and it kinda worked... but why wouldnt the first line work out of the bat? Jun 5, 2023 at 18:35

For a two-column document, you can choose between the acmtog, acmengage, sigconf, or sigplan format.

(\twocolumn is not part of the allowed options of the class.)

acmlarge produces a single column document.

For example using sigplan

a

%\documentclass[acmtog]{acmart}

%\documentclass[acmengage]{acmart}

%\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}

\documentclass[sigplan]{acmart}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
    \title{My big and fancy title: wow, much information but still concise. So beautiful.}
    \author{Marco A. B Montevechi Filho}
    \begin{abstract}
        
        \textbf{Abstract:} \lipsum[10]
        
    \end{abstract}
    
    \maketitle
    
    \section{Introduction}
    \subsection{Overview}
    
    \lipsum[10-100]
    
    \subsection{Subsection}
    
\end{document}

(Put \title and \author after \begin{document}. They are part of the top matter of the article)
