# [Tex/LaTex] Multicolumn vspace

columnsmulticol

I am trying to make a trifold brochure, and vspace is proving ineffective.

Given:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[letterpaper,margin=1cm,landscape]{geometry}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
\begin{multicol*}{3}

\vspace{2.5in}
\hline
\blindtext
\hline
\columnbreak

\end{multicol*}
\end{document}


It appears how I would expect if I had put in the multicol* environment:

\hline
\vfill
\blindtext
\hline
\columnbreak


with the text at the bottom of the page. How do I make vspace in multicol* appear normally?

The goal of this question is not clear, but I think this does what you want:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[letterpaper,margin=1cm,landscape]{geometry}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\begin{document}
\begin{multicols*}{3}
\vspace*{2.5in}%  <-- better, perhaps
% \null\vspace{2.5in}
\noindent\rule{\linewidth}{0.4pt}
\blindtext
\noindent\rule{\linewidth}{0.4pt}
\vfill
\columnbreak
\blindtext
\end{multicols*}
\end{document}


(Note the package is called multicol while you \begin and \end multicols environments.)
