If you’re creating a newsletter, flyer, or some other type of Word document that could benefit from the addition of columns, you’re in luck.

Word 2013/2016 offers many customizable options for columns. You can pick the number of columns, their width and spacing, and whether or not they apply to the whole document. Start from scratch, or select the text you wish to “column-ize,” and go to Page Layout -> Columns and select your desired number of columns, or More Options to customize further. The video above provides a demonstration of this process, as well as a workaround you can use if you’re in Word Online.
