Chapter 6. Enhancing a Document with Word > Arranging Text in Columns

Arranging Text in Columns

Newspaper-style columns can give newsletters and brochures a more polished look. You can format an entire document, selected text, or individual sections into columns. You can create one, two, or three columns of equal size. You can also create two columns and have one column wider than the other. Word 2003 fills one column with text before the other, unless you insert a column break. Column breaks are used in two-column layouts to move the text after the insertion point to the top of the following column. You can also display a vertical line between the columns. To view the columns side by side, switch to print layout view.

Create Columns

Click the Print Layout View button.
