Questions tagged [multicol]

{multicol} is about the multicol package and its multicols environment which allows to typeset text in multiple columns (up to 10) and to balance the end of each column at the end of the environment. For questions about multi-column areas inside a table, use {tables} plus {multicolumn} instead.
