Columns that I have made in the function CMD + B, in my In Design, 16.0, are gone. Can I restore them?

Start by telling us more about your system: Please tell us (exactly) what InDesign version you're using. Please tell us what operating system (exactly) you're running.

 

It sounds like you created a text frame with multiple columns using Object > Text Frame Options. 

 

There is no reason I know for the columns to disappear on their own. They are part of your layout. Did the text which was in the columns disappear too? Did some other event occur at the same time? Obviously, you deleted the frame, you could recreate it.

I am running macos 10,15,7. In version 16.0 of indesign you can create multiple column ”on top” of the page that is alredädy made by in design itself. Lets say it has 3, 4 columns. On top of that ypou can in CMD ”B” command maket 6 - 8 or more columns ”on top” of the others.

 

You can do this with a text block filled with text and you can make. I have used this function:

I'm having a hard time visualizing your layout. Can you attach a screen capture. Not understanding the columns on top of columns part.
