I have a list of about 100 names (first and last).  Each first and last name are on one line followed by a hard return.
Tom Jones
Sammy Hagar
Jimmy Page
etc.
Is there any way for Visio to snake these into a second and third column?
Currently I have one column really, really long column and I have to cut and paste the excess names into a second column..
Then I have to cut and paste the excess names from the second column and create a third column.
Etc.

One thought: put the text into a Word document, create multiple columns so that Word does the columnizing. Then select all in Word, paste special in Visio and choose Microsoft Word as the object type.
