This sounds very much like it. I have two columns, side by side, with text
flowing from one page to the next (parallel columns a la Wordperfect).
As this is one of the cornerstones of my projects I have never tried a setup
without it. At the moment I don't have the real text and images, all is just
a mock-up to see if the tool is up to the job.
