I was hoping to create a travel brochure with my students in their Google Docs, but I have not been able to find anywhere that has columns and the ability to turn the document from portrait to landscape. Are these possible to do in Google Docs?
I'm so glad you asked because YES - you can do both of these!
To turn the page from portrait to landscape, click on the File menu (in Docs), then scroll down to Page setup. A box will open that will allow you to change the page layout. It looks like this:
Next, to add columns, all you have to do is insert a table. Click on the Table menu, then "Insert table." Drag the mouse to the array size you want, most likely in this case 2x1. Right-click (or ctrl+click) on the table itself, choose "Table Properties" from the menu, and then change the border color to white. Here's an example of what it looks like:
You can add as many columns (or rows, if you'd like bigger space between them) as you wish, and no one will be the wiser!
Happy travels to you!
