3 Page Formatting Puzzlers in Word

I want to right align part of a line. For example, in a resume the company name might be flush with the left margin, but the dates of employment should be flush with the right. How do I do that? Make sure your ruler is turned on. On the View tab, in the Show group, check the ruler box. Click the tab indicator twice, until it shows a backwards L shape. Click onto the ruler near the right hand side of the ruler and drag it to right most point on the ruler at the right page margin. I have a newsletter with 3 columns of text.

I have a newsletter with 3 columns of text. I want to begin a paragraph that is now on one page in the 3rd column, onto the next page. How do I do that? With your cursor at the beginning of the paragraph you wish to have on the next page. Then, on the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group look for the Breaks button and click Column.

On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click on the button that looks like a paragraph mark (backward P with a double vertical line). It may take some getting used to, but working with the Show/Hide button set to Show is helpful when you have section breaks (these will happen when you set part of your document to multiple columns, as well as when you manually insert them). You will be able to see tabs, spaces, breaks, cell indicators and paragraph markers.
