Learn how to create multiple columns for an entire document as well as for parts of a document. Discover how to adjust their widths as well as the space between columns, also known as the gutter.
- [Instructor] Have you ever noticed when…you open up a newspaper, maybe a magazine,…and start reading, the text you're looking…at is typically placed into multiple columns,…not a single column going all the way…from the left edge of the page to the right.…The reason is, it can get very tiring on the eyes…to move great distances from left to right.…By placing text into columns, there's less eye strain,…it's more enjoyable, your readers will read more…and they won't get tired.…So we can apply this to our documents here in Pages,…of course, if you have longer documents…and you want people to read without getting eye strain,…you might consider using columns.…
So let's explore with our LeafAndMortarBio document 0503,…if you're catching up.…We'll start by placing the entire document…into two columns.…We'll do that by selecting everything.…Use Cmd + A on your keyboard to select everything.…We'll go over here to the Inspector, make sure Format…is selected, but click Layout…and you'll see a columns section.…You may need to collapse other sections and expand columns…
