AutoCAD 2008 - your new DTP application

Not that AutoCAD will replace FrameMaker or that it will become the typesetting tool for your local newspaper, but - the new function set of the MText editor is quite impressive in AutoCAD 2008.

Especially the column formatting seems to be powerful enough to typeset any column text, including freeflowing newspaper-like columns, with hard column breaks, gutter settings and individual text-alignment in each column. Column text can be controlled either by defining numeric parameters or interactively by grips.

See the lorem-ipsum sample text reflowed into dynamic columns with individually specified height and individual text-alignment. Note the fully justified text in all columns - distributed spacing is used in the left two columns and standard soft spaces are used for aligning in the right two columns.
