How can I make the text that is entered in 1 Body field in CMS editor, display spread across 2 or 3 columns?

Accepted answer

Can be realised on theme level (preprocess in template.php) or in custom module.

I don't think I understand the question. Can you provide a little more explanation?

There is 1 field, called Body.

The text that is entered in that field needs to display as 2 flowing columns.

How can I do that?

@auxiliaryjoel - I think that this is a hard problem to solve. The simple solution is to create two fields and to manually place the first column of text into field #1 and the second column of text into field #2. But, this does require manual editing.

Automatically, taking a block of text, figuring out the midpoint and putting it into two flowing columns is harder to achieve. 

Here is a link to a Drupal 7 sandbox module that used a JQuery library to achieve this, but I'm not seeing a readily available module or tool to accomplish this in Backdrop CMS.

Maybe someone else has an idea. I'd love to hear about it.

Awesome thanks for the link. I was able to achieve it via css.
