Problem with OpenOffice formatting

Post Tue Dec 16, 2014 12:39 pm

Don't know if I post this at the right place, but I'm working on an adventure module right now, and didn't found the way to switch between the 2 columns and single columns layout on OpenOffice. I started with another adventure and erased the text, so the rest of the layout is perfect. Maybe someone can help me for that ?

Thanks Guys !

Highlight the area of text you want to be two column and select Format, Columns. Standard format is 0.20" space between the columns. If you want to have non-columnized space below the two column section, be sure to leave a carriage return or two outside the highlight.

If you find the column layout in your document is just screwed up and want to start over, what you need to do is to remove the offending sections. Look in the Format menu for the Sections option. Whatever section your cursor is in will be highlighted for convenience. Deleting a section does not delete its contents.

Leave it for anyone who encounters the same problem or that have a new formatting problem, I'm sure you won't be the only one.
