  • You can also use the Columns dialog box to adjust the column width and the spacing between columns.

  • If your document has more than one section, the new layout will only be applied to the current section.

  • Insert a column break to control how text flows between columns. For example, insert a column break to end a paragraph in one column and start a new paragraph at the top of the next column.
