Adding a column break in a text area?

OK. So, I can't find a way to add a column break for a text area set in two columns.

I can only add forced line breaks from the Type > Insert Break Character menu.

 

Is it like a Zelda quest to find the key to unlock it?

 

Does anybody know?

 

Thanks in advance.

There's no column break character in Illustrator as far as I know.

Unfortunately, Illustrator still does not provide column breaks ...

 

The common workaround to mimic it is to use a non-filled / non-stroked rectangle and make a text wrap.
