# Two-Column Document using Latex

Hello,

How can I generate a two-column document using Latex? I tried to use the multicol package, but any paragrah I wrote, it was splitted in two columns. I do not want this, I want when the first column finished, the corresponding column in the same page begins.

Another question: I am usually see that the first letter in any paper is large and span two columns. How can I do that? See the figure, please.

Hi there,

Which document class are you using??? I know that the multicol environment worked fine for me in the article class.

Cheers
