Dear all,

groff_ms(7) states that "All of them (i.e. .1C, .2C and .MC) force a
page break if a multi-column mode is already set. However, if the
current mode is single-column, starting a multi-column mode does _not_
force a page break.



Does not force a page break here, assuming that the text was in
one-column mode, but


*does* force a page break.

Is there any chance to override that behaviour, e.g. if I want to split
my text into two short columns (think a picture in the left column and
some text with the picture in the right column)?

After ending the two-column mode, I want to contine on the same page.

Also, how do I force a column to break? .bp forces a page break, it does
not break a column.

Thank you very much,


Dr. Oliver Corff
