Create two columns in a text box in Publisher

A Publisher text box starts with a single column, but you can add more without creating a new text box.

  • Click the text box, go to Text Box Tools Format > Columns and pick two or three columns.

For more columns:

  1. Click the text box.

  2. Click Text Box Tools Format > Columns > More Columns.

  3. In the Number box, type the number of columns, up to 63.

  4. In the Spacing box, use the arrow buttons to increase or decrease the space between columns.

Sometimes a template can help you design a publication with columns designed to look great right away. See to find templates for Publisher newsletters and brochures.
