I'd like to enable a shortcode toolbar button, similar to the "More" break, that I can click to mark an insertion point where the text should be broken into columns.

Do shortcodes have encapsulation or would I need to enter an endpoint?


[column]The column starts here[/column]


[columnBegin]The column starts here[columnEnd]

I'm looking for some examples or plugins that might make this possible.
