Changing Columns

Table of contents:

When changing the number of columns here are some things to consider:

  • To change the number of columns for all the pages based on a specific Master Page, you should edit the Master Page itself. So that the changes adjust the text frames (and not just the guides) on your document pages, choose Layout > Layout Adjustment and turn on the Enable Layout Adjustment checkbox.
  • To change the columns for both left- and right-hand pages of a spread, select both page icons in the Pages palette, otherwise you'll be changing just the left or the right page.
  • Alternatively, you can change the margins and columns for a range of pages by selecting those pages in your Pages palette.
  • To reflow your text according to your new column grid, the Layout Adjustment option must be enabled.
