Had you considered using an app to generate the PDF export from Confluence? We, K15t, develop Scroll PDF Exporter and using this app you can control how your content is formatted and styled from Confluence to PDF. This includes being able to preserve the multi-column page layout formatting if you are using these elements on your page. You can learn more about getting started with the app here. Should you wish you can also evaluate the app for free from the Atlassian Marketplace listing. Thanks, Thomas (K15t)

OK, not as automatic, but does give you a bit of control if you want to highlight stuff in yellow or reduce font size of irrelevent bits etc to concentrate focus.
