If you have a document that is pretty text-heavy, like a newsletter or magazine, you can format it in columns to make it a little easier to read. When using columns, you can also control where a new column begins using column breaks.
Select More options to manually configure your column layout from the Columns dialog box.
- Click Format on the menu bar.
- Select Columns.
- Select More Options.
- Customize the column layout options.
- Click Apply.
The Column options dialog box opens, with some extra column formatting options.
Inserting a column break ends the current column, moving the text cursor and any text after it to the top of the next column.
- Place the cursor where you want the column break.
- Click Insert on the menu bar.
- Select Break.
- Select Column break.
The column break is inserted, and the cursor moves to the beginning of the next column.
