    I want to be able to add columns to a select area of a document in Pages. This is very easy to do in Office (just highlight the text you want to split into columns and choose the number of columns you want) but I haven't been able to find a way to do this in Pages. Please tell me this is possible? Thanks.

    Go to the line before you want to add columns, and then Insert > Layout Break. Then go to the line after you want to add columns, and do Insert > Layout Break.

    Then go inbetween (where the text you want putting into columns should be), open the inspector, Layout (second from the left), and change the columns to 2 (or however many you want).

    Not the best implementation, but AFAIK the only way to do it. One of the many things I'm hoping for in Pages '11!
