Lesson 19. Creating Columns in a Document > Understanding Word Columns

Understanding Word Columns

Word makes it very easy for you to insert and format columns for newsletters, brochures, and other special documents. It gives you complete control over the number of columns, column widths, and the space between the columns. You can insert columns for the entire page run of a document or place columns only in a particular document section.

The columns that you work with in Word are called newspaper or "snaking columns." This means that if you have two columns on a page and fill the first column, the text snakes over into the second column and continues there. This format is typical of your daily newspaper's columns.
