Chapter 5. More Day-to-Day Productivity Tools > Working with Multiple Columns

Working with Multiple Columns

One of the hallmarks of newsletters and other desktop-published documents is the use of multiple “newspaper-style” columns, where text snakes from the bottom of one column to the top of the next column.

Word gives you extensive control over columns. You can create uneven columns, specifying exact widths for each and the amount of white space that appears between the columns. You also can add a new column to existing columns. If columns are turned on for more than one page, Word can flow text from the bottom of the last column on one page to the top of the first column of the next page. To help you refine your layouts, Word can also draw verti cal lines between each column—although you can't control the placement or formatting of those lines.
