      break-before="column"

      I hope this helps.

      Sorry, I should have also mentioned: break-after= column Note also that in both of these cases you are specifying a condition that needs to be true, you are

        Sorry, I should have also mentioned:

        break-after="column"

        Note also that in both of these cases you are
        specifying a condition that needs to be true, you
        are not specifying an action to be taken.

        If, by chance, when you do break-before="column"
        and you are *already* at the very top of the
        column based on other criteria for having flowed
        information to the point where you are, then flow
        continues as the first area from the top of the
        column you are in and does not force you to the
        start of the next column. If there were any
        other areas in that column you would then be moved to the next column.
