How to Insert Columns in the Middle of a Word Document


Changing the layout of an entire document is fairly simple, but switching from a solid block of text to a two-column format in the middle of the document requires a more complex procedure. If you insert a section break, then you can have separate layouts in the two separate sections. The first section can use a normal layout, and the second section can present its text in columns.

  • Click in the middle of the document in the place where you want to insert columns.

  • Click the "Page Layout" tab on the Ribbon.

  • Click the icon labeled "Breaks." On the drop-down menu, select the "Continuous" option.

  • Click the "Columns" icon. On the drop-down menu, click "Two" -- or whatever number and style of columns you prefer.
