Adding a line between columns
of columns at a time. If there are more than three columns, a vertical scroll bar appears in
the Columns dialog box, providing access to additional column settings. When you fi nish
setting up columns, click OK to apply your changes.

Adding a line between columns
In Figure 8.25, notice the Line between option. Check this option to draw a vertical line
between columns. If columns are closely spaced, this can help in maintaining the visual
separation of the columns, thereby improving readability. When you’re using ragged-right
text edges rather than justifi ed text, adding a vertical line can create the appearance of
straighter edges and better visual balance.
Formatting columns using the horizontal ruler
You can format column width and spacing using the horizontal ruler. In Figure 8.26,
notice that the Left and Right Indent controls can appear in only one column at a time.
This doesn’t mean that you get those controls only in a single column. It simply means
that they are shown only for the active column. To change the width of columns, drag the
darker and lighter boundaries between the column spacing and width areas. When you
drag to make a column larger, the adjoining space gets smaller, and vice versa. When
Equal column width is checked in the Columns dialog box, dragging the boundaries of
any column expands or contracts all columns at the same time. The minimum column
spacing is 0. Select text in a column to format it individually. For example, in Figure 8.26,
I selected the numbered list so I could drag the left indent setting and help its items fi fill
the column better.
