Hey guys,

I'm having trouble formatting columns and Pages '09. I wrote up a resume, and the references part goes on a little bit too long. I want to make two columns of just that section. What I did was I highlighted just the contacts portion, I hope inspector, went to layout, and put in two columns. Instead of formatting just the highlighted part, however, it formatted the entire document into two columns, and I can't get it to stop doing that. And I doing something wrong?

Thanks guys

Before and after the section you want to change to two columns, insert (from the Insert menu) a Layout break. It won't add anything visually to the document, but any layout changes, like adding columns, will then only affect that region.
