Turning two columns into one column

Postby bennarky » Sun Dec 16, 2018 7:18 am

Hi, I'm new to this and my teacher is making me use this for a physics project. Could someone tell me how to make it so that I can make a title to a new section that shows up down the middle of the page in a two column document and then go back to two column after the title?

Welcome to the forum!

If it's ok to have the heading at a new page, here's a simple example with the optional argument of \twocolumn:

  1. \documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
  2. \usepackage{blindtext}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. \twocolumn[\section{This is a very wide section heading spanning over two columns}]
  6. \blindtext[5]
  8. \twocolumn[\section{This is another wide section heading spanning over two columns}]
  10. \blindtext[5]
  12. \end{document}
