Microsoft Office questions
« on: July 20, 2009, 07:01:35 PM »
hello

1) can you tell me please how can I enter text columns in a part of a page ? I mean that the specified text columns will not organize the whole text of the page, but only specific text

2) how do I move the cursor from one column to the other with a key shortcut?

thanks

Use a section break before you want columns and another section break when you want to stop using columns

and then the "column break" here:

but it moves the text to the next page...

Use section break continuous - then it breaks without starting a new page.

Put a continuous section break at the start of the text you want in columns, and another afterwards. Then click in the middle section where you want columns.

By default when you set the format to columns it'll only apply to the current section.
