Inserting a column break

Place the insertion point at the beginning of the line which will become the first line of the new column.

On the Layout tab, in the Page Setup group click the Columns button. You can also use the shortcut key [Ctrl][Shift][Enter].

The text shifts to the start of the next column.

When non-printing characters are displayed images/13iac25.png, a dotted line and the words Column Break indicate the position of the break.
