Paragraphs, Pages And Now There’s Sections?

Paragraphs, Pages And Now There’s Sections?

OK, so we all have experience with paragraphs and pages in MS Word… but did you know you have further options for sub-dividing your documents?


Well, let me fill you in.

According to Word’s online help, Sections are “a portion of a document in which you set certain page formatting options. You create a new section when you want to change such properties as line numbering, number of columns, or headers and footers.”

In other words, MS Word has the ability to let you break your document into different pieces, called sections, for purposes related to varying page layouts within the same documents.

Hmm… this one could be a very useful tool.

Think about it—you usually have one column of text but what if you need two columns in a certain area? What now?

The answer lies in sections, of course.

You’d create a section break just before and just after the text to be in a double column format then set the column change for whatever text is between the two breaks.

There are a lot of situations which could easily be resolved if you know how to break the document apart and format each piece as needed.

Interested in knowing how?

Good, I was too, so let’s continue on to today’s tip and discover how to create section breaks in MS Word.
