not having a new page after the index

Postby mlc » Mon Mar 15, 2010 10:10 pm

I'm using the article class. I use \printindex to print an index before the references, but I would like the references to start right after the index, and not in a new page.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Try loading the idxlayout package. It defaults to the index starting on the same page in the article class, though it can be changed.

Thanks a lot. It works. BTW, do you know how I can set the options of having three columns?

You know, I linked to the documentation on CTAN for a reason... so you could read it. That's where I'd get the answer to this question, and why should I read it to get the answer, when you can yourself?

However, it's just
\usepackage[columns=3]{idxlayout}

Ok. Some of us are less familar with the jargon of the doc files: I had read that the option was columns=3 but I didn't know where I was supposed to write that. Now it makes sense. Sorry for annoying you. Thanks for your assistance anyway.
