For years word processing aficionados have complained that Google Docs doesn’t support columns.
Well your wait is finally over!
Sometime in late September, users of Google Docs noticed a new entry for Columns appeared on the Format menu. Now with two clicks you can add a one, two or three-column layout to your Google Doc. To move to the next column use the menu item Insert > Column Break .
For years the column workaround has been to add a table. That’s still not a bad option depending on what you’re trying to do. But page columns are handy for simple layouts– like newsletters.
Let’s not forget we’re still talking about a word processor, not a graphics program. So whether you’re using the full-priced version of Microsoft Word or free options like Writer or Google Docs, it’s good to know the limitations. For any project that’s more complex I still rely on a real page layout program.
