With use of the macro strip from the package cuted: \documentclass[a4paper,10pt,openany,twoside,twocolumn]{book} \usepackage[inner=3cm,outer=2cm, top=2cm]{geometry} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage[english]{babel} %\usepackage{dblfloatfix} \usepackage{cuted} % <--- \usepackage{lipsum} % using only for this MWE \begin{document} \chapter{Lorem ...

In addition to the strip environment, I would recommend using the epigraph package, which can easily be adapted to your taste: \documentclass[a4paper,10pt,openany,twoside,twocolumn]{book} \usepackage[inner=3cm,outer=2cm, top=2cm]{geometry} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{dblfloatfix} \usepackage{cuted} \usepackage{epigraph} \...

If you want to set the entire text in two column, then give the number of columns in class option, please avoid to keep \begin{twocolumn}..., example given below: \documentclass[twocolumn,12pt,3p]{elsarticle} \usepackage{lipsum} \journal{Nucl. Instrum. Methods A} \begin{document} \title{Article title} \author{Author Name} \begin{abstract} \lipsum[1] \...

You asked in a follow-up comment, Does it mean can I use figure instead of figure* to span the two columns? Short answer: No. Longer answer: No. Very long answer: No. To place two graphs side by side within a single figure* environment, encase the graphs (along with their \caption statements) in separate minipage environments. I further suggest you use ...

Another way to put your figure where you want is to use the package float. You write the code of your figure in the place that you want your figure and put beside the beginning of your figure an H. Example: \begin{figure}[H] your code here \end{figure}

This solution uses \afterpage to delay the creation of the float to the desired page and column (in this case, page 2, right column). Note that you need to create a new \delayfloat macro for every figure or table you want delayed. Also, the caption numbers may be off. \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage{afterpage} \usepackage{lipsum}% MWE only ...

This solution modifies \@makechapterhead to include the quote, which is stored in a savebox ahead of time by \chapterquote. Note that flushright is a list and adds extra space above and below, where as \makebox does not. \documentclass[a4paper,10pt,openany,twoside,twocolumn]{book} \usepackage[inner=3cm,outer=2cm, top=2cm]{geometry} \usepackage{lmodern} \...
