Please add Multi-Column Text support to Google Docs.

This petition made change with 49 supporters!


The one function that every document editor has but Google Docs lacks is columns.

Please help sign this petition so we can show Google how much this feature is needed. Google docs is a good tool but it could be a great tool. Columns can make text easier to read and more visually appealing. One of the few factors that prevents wider adoption of Google docs is the inclusion of things like Columns. 

Google docs is a web based application but that does not preclude it from having this feature. The columns function is in every current browser.


.doccolumns {
-webkit-column-count: 3; /* Chrome, Safari, Opera */
-moz-column-count: 3; /* Firefox */
column-count: 3;
}

That is all of the code it takes to get columns.

The only way to get columns in Docs currently are messy workarounds using tables that are time consuming and cause the entire document to have to be manually reformatted if you change just a few lines of text.

Google can make the world's best search engine, self driving cars and robots, it is time we get the world's best text editor too.
