kpdf select tool works by allowing you to draw a rectangle in your document. You start at the upper left-hand corner of your selection and drag the rectangle to cover the area you wish to select. In principle, this should allow you to select a column by dragging the rectangle to cover the column (or part of the column) you wish to select. I've never tried it with columns but it may do what you want.
