In previous versions of LibreOffice one can select a portion of text to format in columns. Now, the only option is to format the entire page into columns.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select text on page
2.Click on Format
Cannot format text selections into columns.
Column is missing
User Profile Reset: No
There should be a way to format selections of text into columns

Probably moved for some reason.
Alternative: Format -> Page -> Columns
Or customize the menu: Tools -> Customize
It hasn't moved. The page column format is just that, the entire page. You can format an entire page into columns, but there is no way to format selections into column format. Selection column format is not present in this software version in any menu.

The dialog tool you seek for you work flow remains but is now manipulated from the Insert -> Section: Columns tab.
The structure of ODF and the document canvas have always used "Sections" not columns--by default a section of 1 column.
