If you go to the WP main Dashboard page, the screen options allow you to have 1-4 columns for the screen layout.

When you get to the Add/Edit Post/Page pages (/wp-admin/post-new.php and /wp-admin/post-new.php?post_type=page), the max columns you get to pick is only 2.

For someone who has several custom taxonomies, fields and meta boxes, it would be really useful if I could choose maybe 3 or 4 columns instead of having to scroll down each time to select from custom options.

If this is possible, please point me. I would be very, very grateful! I've searched and found nothing on this.

Someone asked a similar question on the wordpress.org forums a little while back. – t31os Jun 19 '11 at 9:51
@t31os That actually works! Can't believe I couldn't find it. I guess I was using the wrong keywords for that particular post. Thank you! – OTN Jun 20 '11 at 2:41
@t31os - I was going to ask you to paste your solution here, but it looks like all proposed solutions in that thread are broken in 3.4... – brasofilo Jul 15 '12 at 16:50
