Paragraph setting to override no. of columns

Recommended Posts

I worked on a multi-page document yesterday, and quickly got frustrated because I could not find a way to override the No. of columns setting at the paragraph level.

It is useful to be able to do this because you can then have titles and introductory paragraphs than span the full width of the text area in the same text box as the main text. This makes master pages way more flexible. You do not have to create separate text boxes for titles and introductory paragraphs.

You can also do other things, like having a wide text column, and then, in the text flow, you can override the number of paragraphs, and have a multi-column section right in the main flow.

FrameMaker could do this, and it was very useful, both for short articles and longer non-fiction documents.

This has already been discussed in various places on the forum.  Short version: not yet possible to do this within a single text frame.
