Description Holbernd 2012-08-17 10:40:13 UTC
Problem description: There is no possibillity to have automatically generated column-numbers.

Steps to reproduce:
1. I have a document with more than one column.
2. It is only posslible to show pagenumbers, but not to show automatically generated columnumbers.

Current behavior: columnnumbers are missing.

Expected behavior: in Documents with more than one columns, I can easily insert the number of the column, so that it is automatically shown on each page.

Longtime open bug, but I don't understand it. Confirmed too soon.
What exactly is asked for and what is the use case?
I read and per that this is not to be supported.
