Change default margins, i.e. the blank space between the left, right, top and bottom page edges and the paragraph text, clicking the Margins icon and selecting one of the available presets: Normal, US Normal, Narrow, Moderate, Wide.

The custom margins will be applied to the current document and the Last Custom option with the specified parameters will appear in the Margins list so that you can apply them to some other documents.

Enter your new values into the entry fields or adjust the existing values using arrow buttons. Check the Column divider box to add a vertical line between the columns. When ready, click OK to apply the changes.
To exactly specify where a new column should start, place the cursor before the text that you want to move into the new column, click the Breaks icon at the top toolbar and then select the Insert Column Break option. The text will be moved to the next column.
