### 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

\documentclass[journal,comsoc]{IEEEtran}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}% optional T1 font encoding
\usepackage{cite}

% For Highlight text
\usepackage{color,soul}

% For Page Color
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{pdfcolmk}
\usepackage{varioref}
\usepackage{subfig}

\begin{document}

contents

\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}

I'm also new to Latex. I have composed a diary paper ( in two sections) to submit for distribution. After accommodation, the proofreader requested me to present the single-segment form from my paper. Is there is an order that I can add to change over my twofold segments paper to a solitary segment as opposed to revising everything?

Hi vajar,

welcome to the forum!

That can be done, such as by removing a towolumn option or a \twocolumn command. Perhaps show us (with code), how you made it twocolumn (as it is not default) and we can tell how to make it a single column paper.
