Google Apps - Columns in a Google Document

There are times where I really want to utilize a 2 column layout in a Google Document.  Unfortunately, columns are not a feature built in to Google Documents.  So I'm providing two work-arounds for creating that layout look without actually using columns over the next two newsletters.  This week, we will look at how to accomplish this with a table.

One workaround is to use a two column table.  Create a 2 X 1 table:


If you right click on the table, you get a choice in the menu of Table Properties:



In the Table Properties window, you can change the border to "0":


This will "hide" the border so the area looks similar to a two-column section in a document.  You can even adjust the widths of each "column" if you want.
