On open office -- when inserting columns within a document, i don't want the "automatically distribute text evenly option

Asked by michael combs on 2012-04-06

On open office -- when inserting columns within a document, i don't want the "automatically distribute text evenly option; yet when i cancel that option it doesn't allow me to enter text into the second column.

 i would like to be the one in charge of what text goes where.

how can i enter text in the second column?

Perhaps this:-

Insert > Manual Break > Column Break

Or maybe use frames?

yes, the first solution (manual break> column break) worked! thank you very much!
