This is what Tables are designed to do....
yes, I realize that but setting them up is very confusing and not giving me the solution. I admit to being overwhelmed by this so I am asking if there is either another way to achieve this or if there is a tutorial vid someone can recommend.
Start with using the table.
Insert a table with the number of column you need and one headline.
Set up Paragraph Styles for each different type (Headline/Body, left, center right)
Set up a cell style for each type
Apply for each cell in the first line the Cell style, and drag the vertical divider to the width you need. You can select several columns and use either the cell properties information in the panel or use some commands in the context menu.
When you have learned this, the next step would be (not now) to set up table styles, but first you need to know how cell styles work. When you later come to the point that you can format whole tables by pre-formatted styles (table stylees) by clicking once when you create a table.
Important is—as always—to use style: Paragraph Styles, Character Styles, Cell Styles, Table Styles and Object Styles. If you learn to use the same names and relations between the stles you can use over and over again the same style with some fast done adaptions.
I would strongly recommend not to use more than one space in a row as spaces have not always the same width (see setting in the Justify section of the Paragraph Style). Even if it looks fine on the screen, it will look horrible in print.
