Why Use Columns?

Columns are commonly used in newsletters, brochures, and similar documents. The shorter lines of text provided by columns are easier to read, and they provide greater flexibility in formatting a document with graphics, tables, and so on. Word makes it easy to use columns in your documents. Figure 23.1 shows a document formatted with two columns.

The columns you create in Word are newspaper style columns, in which the text flows to the bottom of one column and then continues at the top of the next column on the page. For side-by-side paragraphs, such as you would need in a resume or a script, use Word's table feature, which is covered in Lesson 22.
