Make Columns in Publisher: Overview

            You can make columns in Publisher to aid in the layout of a publication page. You can then add text boxes over the column guides you create in the page to produce newsletter-style layouts. When you make columns in Publisher, you can also add rows to a publication page.

            To make columns in Publisher, click the “Page Design” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “Guides” button in the “Layout” button group. Then select the “Grid and Baseline Guides…” command from the menu’s drop-down button.

            Doing this then causes the “Grid Guides” tab in the “Layout Guides” dialog box to appear. You can create columns and rows within a page using the settings on this tab.

            In the “Column Guides” section, enter the number of columns to add to the page into the “Columns:” spinner box. You can enter the desired column spacing to allocate by using the “Spacing:” spinner buttons.
