Columns can be used for a variety of document types, such as a tri-fold brochure. To do this, go to Format > Columns. From the Columns menu (Figure 5), you can choose the number of columns, set column width and spacing. Once you select your preferred design, it will show up in the Preview box. This is a nice feature because it allows you to see what you are selecting before applying it to your word document. When you are happy with how your document looks, click OK.
