Column breaks don’t end columns; they merely split a column, ending text at a certain
point on a page and starting the rest of the text at the top of the next column.
Use the Show/Hide command in the Home group (the Paragraph Mark button) to know
where exactly to place the column break. You might want to insert the column break after a
paragraph mark (¶) to have the columns line up at the top of the page.
