Are you using a Frame (Insert/Frame) or a Drawing Textbox? I don't know how to do columns with a Drawing Textbox (although you could simulate columns with two side-by-side textboxes--but with no flow from one to another.)

With a Frame you can set the number of columns. Select the frame border such that the resize buttons are activated, then right-click and choose Frame on the context menu. Choose the columns tab and then set the number of columns to use.

You can create new frame styles with different column numbers using the styles and Formatting dialog for Frames, and then apply those styles to existing frames.

No, I'm not using a frame - I'm trying to divide an A4 landscape document into either 2 columns or 4.
