Compiling page in dual columns

I saw an old (5 years ago) Reddit topic with the following regarding compiling in Scrivener:
“Well it sounds like you already found the compile setting for turning on columns for the entire document. I’m afraid what you see there is the limits of what we support.”

Basically the conversation went that you could create your entire Scrivner document in dual columns per page, during compile, or single column, but you couldn’t have some sections in dual column and others single.

Is this a thing? Can I compile in two columns per page and if so, how do I do it? I’ve googled and youtubed to no avail.

Specifically, what you can do is format the first [section]* of the output as a single column, and then the rest in multiple columns. See Section 24.6.2 in the manual for more information.

*[section] could be the first document or the front matter. The option is designed, for instance, for technical journals that have a full width title/author/abstract block, followed by two column text.

(For future reference, the best source of information about Scrivener in general and the Compile command in particular, is the manual.)

Thank you very much! And thank you for the reminder regarding the manual, will start there with other questions.
