How to create double columns in typeset documents
Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word
The typesetting specifications for each document shell determine the number of columns initially created with the shell, but you can modify the setting. Although most shells default to a single column, some default to double columns; skim through A Gallery of Document Shells to identify them.
To create double-column output for your document, change the document class options to specify the double-column option. LaTeX will then typeset the entire body of the document in two columns. The option doesn't necessarily apply to all parts of the document front matter. If you want finer control over columns, use the multicol package.
