multicolumns[3] and image that is covering exactly 2 columns

Postby Natan » Thu Jan 21, 2021 3:02 pm

I am "designing" the layout for a newspaper. Therefore I try to find different representations of image placement in multicols. So far I know of only few.
For this specific topic I am interested in finding a solution to this:
How can I place an image in a 3 column environment in such a way that it spans over exactly two of those columns. The third column should be filled with regular text. One might think of something similar using figur* and 2 column and just imagine that there would be a third column next to it.

An option would be ending the three-column and placing minipages, but this is not really a solution, is it ^^ The text would be broken and it wouldn't look nice.

This is just an example of a few things I know that are possible with images and multicols so you might have a starting point.
