Hi Petros,

thank you for reporting this mistake in the Help.

I think it should read:
 Choose Format - Styles and Formatting - Page Styles - Select page - open context menu Modify/New - Columns tab

regards,
Cor

Hi Cor, 

Yes, that is correct regarding the Help, but then Columns is restricted to be a part of Page Styles only, and not of Paragraph Styles, as it should be as Selection. 

However, it seems that this is rather an omission and not a mistake, error or bug.

Regards,

Petros

- Well, rather Frame Styles, than Section:

  Chapter 3  Using Styles and Templates | 61 

  Do you agree?
