Left and right columns - only displayed if module present

Featured Lock Resolved Task
Is it possible to add a conditional statement to the left and right columns in Helix Ultimate to only display on pages where a module is applied to that column.

Thereby using the traditional joomla template code of the past like:

<?php if ($this->countModules('left)) : ?>
<div id="sp-left">
<jdoc:include type="modules" name="left" />
<?php endif; ?>

Maybe I wrong, but even with left & right columns set in Layout they appear only when you publish module there, there is no empty column(s) waiting for module.
