Word.Tips.net: Single-Column Headings in Multi-Column Layouts

By Allen Wyatt for Word.Tips.Net

There may be many times when your document layout calls for using a single-column section in the middle of a multi-column page layout. For instance, if you are creating a newsletter, you may want three columns in the newsletter, but a headline that spreads across all the columns. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Format your page so that it uses three columns.

2. Type your newsletter article. It should spread across the three columns as you would expect.

3. At the beginning of the article, type the text that you want to appear as the headline or banner. (Make sure you press Enter at the end of the headline or banner.)

  1. PLEASE. I just want to know how to move from one column to another and to the next one — with key stroke shortcuts if possible — but even by mouse
