hello all, i have a word doc. but i want to create a vertical line on the page about 2 inches wide from the left margin. the body of the text goes right of that line. and left of the line i can place little notes and references. i don't know what this is called so i cant find it in word help. i tried columns but was unable to jump about from column to column at will, any help on this please
The other thing you could do is set up a two column, single row, table. You then remove all outer borders and just include the single column separator as the line. You can easily move the line horizontally to position it as you want.
The advantage of this is that the line (table) length keeps track of what you write. If, however, you want to fill the page to the end, you would need to fill the end of your text with carriage returns.
