DIVIDING INTO COLUMNS
In Word, we can divide one page or an entire document into 2 or more columns. This is very useful when we are editing different kinds of text; it helps us visualize their content better.
For example, people who write articles for magazines or newspaper usually divide their work into columns. This eases movement and focuses reading to a specific area.
