One thing I do amongst all the things I do is to tech edit articles and books.

You learn a lot when you do this, on the one hand you learn how much you don’t know and on the other you learn how much you do know… it’s an eye opening experience both ways.

One thing that came out of a recent experience is how to do columns in Word. In this case, I liked my solution lots better than the one in front of me.

To turn a piece of text you have already created into a series of columns in Word, select the text and choose Format, Columns. Now choose how many and the width of your columns and instantly – columns to go!

I won’t disclose the solution I was editing… it simply wasn’t this simple.
