See the attached. I removed the preamble, modules, and ERT. I selected two
column format under "Text Layout" under Document Settings. It appears to
work fine, but I'm not sure what you meant by:

If I set the page layout as 2 column, the figures are included, but the
title, author, abstract, and bibliography are also in the 2-column format.

For me, the title, author, and date are set in single-column format,
whereas the abstract and bibliography are in the 2-column format. This is
expected in my opinion, but if you're looking for something else, you may
be forced to use ERT to customize further.

Guillaume,

  I tried both approaches on that stackexchange thread but could not learn
how to add captions and labels to non-float graphic inserts. So, ... I went
to the LyX wiki on Figures and found the answer:

  Insert the figure in a float and add the caption and cross-reference label
to it. Then position the cursor immediately ahead of the float and invoke
the Edit -> Float Settings checkbox. Deselect "Default settings" and select
the "Here definitely" option. Set the figure width to 100% column width,
save and compile.

Hope this helps others, too,

Rich

\begin_layout Abstract
Natural resource companies do not object to environmental regulations that
 are consistent and support predictability.
 Consistency and predictability are critical for decision making under condition
s of uncertainty.
 Natural ecosystems are inherently variable across a broad range of temporal
 and spatial scales; climate change, drought, and societal desires for sustainab
ility make people more aware of this variability.
 The science used for development and enforcement of environmental regulations
 has not kept pace with developments in ecological theory and the analytical
 tools capable of describing, characterizing, classifying, and predicting
 natural ecosystems as well as distinguishing natural variability from anthropog
enic changes.
 
\end_layout

\begin_layout Abstract
Because natural resource industries (agriculture, energy, mining) provide
 the base for all economic and societal activities it is critical that environme
ntal statutes and regulations be regularly updated to use the most technically
 sound and legally defensible scientific knowledge and tools.
\end_layout

\begin_layout Abstract
Mathematical models were the tools of choice when environmental statutes
 and regulations were introduced, perhaps because they were successfully
 applied to static components of the built environment such as buildings
 and bridges.
 While their limitations for highly variable natural ecosystems were accepted
 then, there is now no benefit to not replacing them with statistical models.
\end_layout

\begin_layout Abstract
This paper describes limitations in policy and regulatory decision-making
 based on mathematical models and explains how the appropriate statistical
 models avoid the subjectivity and rigidity of the former.
 Changing the basis of determining and justifying policy and environmental
 regulations is consistent with the concepts of regulatory science applied
 to human health.

Re: multicol package

2009-07-16 Thread Marcelo Acuña

 I am trying to set up a book (8x10
 - about 400 pages) with mostly 2 columns. 
 I want the chapter titles and section headings to go across
 the page with the 
 body text in 2 columsn.
 
 I have set it up as follows:
 
 Chapter Title
 \begin{multicols}{2}
 
 (body text)
 
 \end{multicols}
 
 or
 
 Section Heading
 \begin{multicols}{2}
 
 (body text)
 \end{multicols}
 
 It seems to work OK until I'm about half way through the
 book, then when I try 
 to view using DVI or PDF, I get an error message Dimension
 too large.
 
 Is there a limit as to how many times you can changee from
 one to two columns? 
 Is there a limit to how many words this setup can handle?
 Any help would be 
 appreciated.
 
 
 The errors is produced for another cause.
 No limits in the words.
 I have in several times Dimension too large but, for now, I can pinpoint the 
origin. I not use multicol but two columns option in koma-script style.

 I am trying to set up a book (8x10 - about 400 pages) with mostly 2
 columns. I want the chapter titles and section headings to go across the
 page with the body text in 2 columsn.

 I have set it up as follows:

 Chapter Title
 \begin{multicols}{2}

 (body text)

 \end{multicols}

 or

 Section Heading
 \begin{multicols}{2}

 (body text)
 \end{multicols}

 It seems to work OK until I'm about half way through the book, then when I
 try to view using DVI or PDF, I get an error message Dimension too large.

 Is there a limit as to how many times you can changee from one to two
 columns? Is there a limit to how many words this setup can handle? Any help
 would be appreciated.
