    Please help me understand Flexible-Width Columns in CS6

    Cheryl Graham Level 2

      I have a text frame that is 300 points wide. It has two columns, with a 12-point gutter. So the columns are 144 points wide. If I set the maximum value to 200 points, then reduce the size of the text frame to 200 points, I get one column. So far, so good, I get that.

       

      But, unlike with fixed-width columns, I am able to make the text frame more narrow, resulting in a single colum that's less than 144 points wide.

       

      I thought that the 144 was the minimum, but that's clearly not the case. Can somebody explain?
