Sorry if this seems like a dumb question, but I am a novice at this type of thing;
I am putting together my weekly church Order Of Service and have the text for an anthem
which i would like to break into two columns of text. I have no idea how to do this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
There are several approaches to columns:
You can have columns on the page and draw frames in each column
You can have columns in the frame
You can have both (the frame wins)
Also to column breaks:
Enter on the Numeric keypad is the shortcut for column break
Type menu > Breaks
Attach it to a style, such as a heading
Does this answer your question, or do you need more info?
Another idea is to use Split Columns. Let's say you have a one column format:
And you want to make a section within the one column format into two columns:
Select the text (in your case, the lines of the anthem) with the Type tool. Select the ¶ view of the Control panel on the top left of your screen, and select Split 2 from the Span Columns menu on the right.
