sidebar column group button
In the insert toolbar, we have group/split buttons for inserting sections (.uno:InsertSection) and inserting frames (.uno:InsertFrameInteract), but we dont have a similar interactive button for formatting the page into columns, but instead have a button which only the column dialog (.uno:FormatColumns).
It would be useful to have an interactive button to segment the page into columns, similar to how we have it in the page section of the sidebar's properties tab.
I agree. status NEW.
@Szymon: Is this control that you added to the notebookbar accessible also in the toolbar?

Thanks. Anyway that this control is also usable in the menubar?
No, because the behaviour implementation is placed in the popup's code.
