Default Legend with Multiple Columns for XY Line Plots

Hello everyone,
I am trying to see if it is possible to add a XY line legend with multiple columns (say 3 rows x 2 columns) rather than one long legend column (6 rows x 1 column)
While I didn't find the feature in Tecplot360 GUI I thought it would be available in pyTecplot but I had no luck
I don't mind even if it is a workaround, I just need something that works other than editing the exported image in Photoshop.

Default multiple frames solution

Being unaware of any feature to address this directly in tecplot, my solution is to create multiple overlapping frames (in this case 3 frames for 3 columns) making all but the bottom frame hide the background. Then you can select different line plots to be active in each frame and display the line legend for each frame. Admittingly a bit of a pain, especially having to manage which frame is on top, but don't forget to use frame linking to your advantage.
