Edit or compile text in two columns

Is it possible to produce a document with two columns of text (as is common for magazine / scientific articles)? Either by compiling or directly in the editor?
For example a doc like the spacewalk_info.pdf in the tutorial?

Not yet, though there are plans for that in the future (for supported compile formats). For now the best approach is to make this change in a word processor after you compile. This usually only a few clicks, thankfully.

Thanks for reply. Any idea when the new function will be added?
