[texhax] double column section headers?

Thanks all but muliticol will only handle double-width floats and so doesn't satisfy my needs.

I'll stick to my workaholic and see if it spawns problems elsewhere.

Sorry, needs package varioref as well – add \usepackage{varioref} to the preamble :p

Hi again Steve

Do you absolutely need the figure/float "HERE" (\begin{figure}[H])?

If not, the starred version works, but places it outside of the multicols, most likely on the next page. It seems that this would be the solution I would use, though others may have another (more elegant) solution?

\usepackage{pstricks-add} % for \psLoop



\psLoop{100}{Testing }

Figure \vref{fig1}





\caption{Testing as well} \label{fig1}


\psLoop{100}{Lorem ipsum }
