Add a line between text columns

To use the following steps, you need to set up your text box (text box: A movable, resizable container for text or graphics. Use text boxes to position several blocks of text on a page or to give text a different orientation from other text in the document.) to have more than one column.

  1. Right-click the text box, click Format Text Box, and then click the Colors and Lines tab.
  2. Under Preview, click the button for the center vertical line centerline button. Make sure no other buttons are selected so that the options you select for the line affect only the center vertical line.
  3. Under Line, select the options you want for the center line, and then click OK.

To add columns to a text box:

  1. Right-click the text box that you want to change, and then click Format Text Box.
  2. In the Format Text Box dialog box, click the Text Box tab, and then click Columns.
  3. In the Columns dialog box, type or select the number of columns you want in the Number box, and then type or select the spacing value (gutter amount) you want in the Spacing box.
