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.
Method #1 - Utilizing TablesOne 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.
