Print in two columns
You can print documents with two columns rather than one to improve readability and overall design, for example, a balance sheet with assets on the left side and liabilities and equity on the right side. Two column printing provides a similar look to using a table, but is easier to move, format and align after it has been set up.
To print in two columns:
- Ensure you are working in Design Mode.
- On the ribbon, click File | Print | Page Setup.
- In the Scope group, select whether to apply the setting to the current page, this page forward or the whole document.
- In the 2 Column Printing group, select Enable 2 Columns.
- If required, increment the distance between each column in the Distance Between field. Click OK.
The specified area of the document displays in two columns.
- You can adjust the column alignment using tab markers.
- You can specify where to break content to the next column using a column break. To insert a column break, click Insert | Column Break or press Ctrl+Shift+Enter on your keyboard.
