So only way I can get a long specification note into LO from RTF is to
1] Insert the RTF
2] Adjust the text boxt width to column width [that now becomes mightly long]
3] Copy that text box multiple times to create columns
4] Then selectively delete all the text duplicated in the wrong column.
Then do it all again if the formatting or content changes
A simple FLOW TEXT option would be invaluable
[so much for LO's parentage being DTP ]
Maybe better transfer this to 2018 Feature Request !
Anyone have a better methdology ?
