Does BIRT 3.7 support multiple column reports. I've tried setting this up on the Master Page but no matter what I try the report is always rendered with a single column. I've read this should be supported now, but I've found no concrete examples or tutorials on how to make this work.

I am trying to set "Master Page" > "Advanced" > "Columns"

Shane,

If you mean like a newspaper flow, it is not supported yet, but you can
just put a two or three column grid in and then put tables, charts, etc
into each of the columns. You can also add a computed column to tables
and filter the list of rows displayed in a table. Take a look at the
attached example.

Thanks Jason. Yes, I am trying to have content flow into columns similar to a newspaper layout.

Do you know if it is on the roadmap at all? I can use computed columns and filters for some reports, but I can't think of a good way to have the report flow into columns the way I'd like.

Does the commercial product support this? I'm confused because there is information online that makes it seem like this feature has been implemented.

For example:

eclipse.org/birt/ref/rom/elements/GraphicMasterPage.html

Thanks

Currently this is not implemented in commercial or open source. It is
in bugzilla:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=133218
Can you please vote on this?

Can you give some more detail on how you want it to flow and maybe with
some scripting we can provide a work around.

Jason
