Increase number of columns on the Edit Post screen

    As described here

    Given the number of plugins, custom taxonomies and other options that can add boxes to the Edit Post screen, it would be nice to have an option to increase it to 3 or 4 columns. Of course the current layout with 2 columns would stay the default.

    Third Column seems to be broken in latest WordPress 3.4 release.
    Would be so cool if something was done in WP core code !

    Columns are fine. Post in the support forums if you need help.

    +1 on a third column on the "edit post" template...

    Obviously this issue is largely understood given the relatively recent changes to the 4 column layout of the dashboard...

    The vast majority of custom fields and other "meta" postboxes are wasted space on any monitor bigger than an e-book these days...

    The status of this idea says "This idea has been implemented".
    But sadly I do not see options for more than two columns in the screen options. I'm using WP 3.4.1
