Hi Bob, thank you for your comment.

Multiple column layout, for example, can be achieved from Org with a
special block (and loading the multicol package). For example:

#+LaTeX_Header: \usepackage{multicol}
#+ATTR_LaTeX: :options {2}
#+begin_multicols
...
#+end_multicols

As I mentioned in a previous message, I have to organize and clean all
the code in those two books of my samples, and upload it to GitLab, in
case it could be useful to someone...

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
