The columns stop, and regular, one-column text is restored.
When you work these steps, you place a continuous section break into your document. The
multicolumn format is applied to the previous section, and the single (“One”) column format is applied
after the section break.
A continuous section break doesn’t contain a page break; the new column format can pick up in the
middle of a page. Refer to Chapter 14 to bone up on section breaks.
Placing a column break
When you want to continue using columns but want the text you’re writing to start at the top of the
next column, you need a column break. Figure 20-2 illustrates what I’m talking about.
Figure 20-2: How a column break works.
To create such a thing, heed these steps:
1. Place the insertion pointer where you want your text to start at the top of the next column.
2. On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, choose Breaks ⇒ Column.
The text hops to the top of the next column.
