Modify the paragraph style. (
F11, right click in the paragraph style that you use for the text in the columns, select
Modify, select the
Borders tab). Don’t indent the text, add a border, line color same as background of your column, add padding instead of indentation. If you want different colors in the columns, you can do that by direct formatting (select all text in a column, select
Paragraph - then as in the paragraph style.)
Made some changes - removed padding below and above, added CRs to fill the columns, gave different colors to columns content using direct formatting.
Note Saving as .docx will totally mess up the padding, so keep this in the .odt format, or you will get lost.
