Yesterday I updated ID and noticed that the drop down selector for spanning text across columns. Not sure where or how to do something that was so nicely convenient. Can anyone help me out?
It's still there if you have the Type tool, and are in the Paragraph view of the Control Panel
But, it's pretty far to the right, and with the new spacing in yesterday's update, I wonder if it's too far right to be seen? If that's the case, you can get it from the Control panel menu, to the right of the lightening bolt. If that's too much trouble, consider creating a keyboard shortcut (Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts).
And consider using a higher resolution display to show more of the Control panel buttons.
Thank you BarbBinder. The displays are good. I have to 27 inch Apple cinema displays. My settings were reset to Character Formatting instead of Paragraph.
Well, that was easy!
