Hey. Does anyone know how I can start my document with whole pages of text and then at say page 10 change the style to be newspaper-esque so that the text is in two columns. Format > Page > Columns does the entire document.
Thanks

You can also create Page Styles using the Stylist and create a page style that uses columns. This may help: http://www.8daysaweek.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=20

Another alternative is to use sections: Insert > Section...

It's all to do with page styles. Styles are important in any WP but done very well in OOo. You create one style for each page layout you want, and check on the follow-on style that will be used for subsequent pages.

It's easy, really.
