Presenting Text in Columns

By default, Word displays text in one column, but you can specify that text be displayed in two, three, or more columns to create layouts like those used in newsletters and brochures. In Word, a column is a block of text that has its own margins. When you create multiple columns, the text flows, or “snakes”, from the bottom of one column to the top of the next. You can insert a column break to force subsequent text to move to the next column.


You can create a multi-column format by using the Columns command on the Format menu or the Columns button on the Standard toolbar. No matter how you set up the columns, you can change their width in the Columns dialog box, and you can format text in columns as you would any other text. For example, you can change the indentation or the alignment of text in a column using the horizontal ruler or buttons on the Formatting toolbar.
