Hello, I have been having trouble with this and would appreciate any help.
I read in the documentation but it doesn't work, that you can create a
single column section that goes across an 8.5x11" page, and then after that,
you can set the page to 2 columns. I mean, you can do that, but it subsumes
the Section into one of the columns, not allowing it to spread across the
I am wanting to do a Chapter Opening page, different from my other pages,
and have the chapter heading go all the way across the top, but still have a
2 column body page. I have created a 2 col section before and left the base
page as single column, and that worked, but I constantly had to watchdog the
section from bleeding over to the next page, so that is not my preferred
solution to this. Is there a way for a Section to pass across both columns
of a page? I have also tried Insert Break and Column, but all that does is
jump from one column to the next, so also not what I want.
I have created a frame that goes across the page - can I place a Section
inside of it, and it will be picked up by the Chapter numbering of LO, for
when I build my table of contents?

Why aren't you using page styles? Create a page style (Style A)
that has two columns for the first page of your chapter and another page
style for the rest of the chapter (Style B). When you create Style A,
you list Style B as the page style to follow Style A. You also select
Style B to follow Style B. At the end of each chapter, do a page break
selecting Style A as the next page style.
