  21. Format a Multiple-Column Newsletter • Newsletters are usually two or three columns wide. • Using four or more columns in 8.5 x 11-inch paper looks awkward because they are so narrow.

  23. Format a Multiple-Column Newsletter • Section break—divides the one-column section of the document from the two-column section of the document • Usually below the nameplate (title) • Section—portion of a document that can be formatted differently from the rest of the document • A section break marks the end of one section and the beginning of another section.

  31. Use Special Character and Paragraph Formatting • For headlines and titles, small caps is an attractive font effect. • The effect changes lowercase letters to uppercase letters, but with the height of lowercase letters.

  32. Use Special Character and Paragraph Formatting • Manual line break—hold down the Shift key while pressing the Enter key • Moves text to the right of the insertion point to a new line • Keeps text in the same paragraph

  33. Use Special Character and Paragraph Formatting • A line break indicator, a bent arrow, indicates that a manual line break was inserted.

  34. Use Special Character and Paragraph Formatting • Paragraph borders provide strong visual cues to the reader. • Paragraph shading: • Can be used with or without borders • Draws reader’s eye to text
