### Double Column to Single Column Conversion

Dear All,

I am new to Latex. I have written a journal paper ( in two columns) to submit it for publication. After submission, the editor asked me to submit the single column version of my paper. Is there is a command that I can add to convert my double columns paper to a single column instead of rewriting everything?

I am using

1. \documentclass[journal,comsoc]{IEEEtran}
2. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}% optional T1 font encoding
3. \usepackage{cite}
4.
5. % For Highlight text
6. \usepackage{color,soul}
7.
8. % For Page Color
9. \usepackage{xcolor}
10. \usepackage{pdfcolmk}
11. \usepackage{varioref}
12. \usepackage{subfig}
13.
14. \begin{document}
15.
16. contents
17.
18. \end{document}

Welcome to the forum!

IEEEtran is double column by default. But you can change it to single column easily by adding the onecolumn class option:

\documentclass[journal,comsoc,onecolumn]{IEEEtran}
