Working with Columns

Using columns in Word can improve readability. When using Word columns can break up text and make Word documents easier to read.


  • Open an existing document that contains several paragraphs.
  • Select the text, and convert it to two columns.
  • Balance the column length by inserting a continuous section break.
  • Add a title that spans both columns.
  • Change your text back into a single column document. Delete any additional section breaks if needed.
