I am writing a report in a 2 column page format. Now I want to insert a rather large picture that requires to use full width of the page and cut the columns horizontally. How can I achiveve this? Please see the images below for what I mean :
If you're looking to have your text read left to right columns above the image, and begin left to right again after the image (rather than left top to bottom, right top to bottom), all you need to do is add two breaks.
- Insert your image,
Insert > Picture, then
Format > Wrap Text > Top & Bottomwill insert your image and apply the basic, proper formatting.
- Insert a Column Break in the left column where you want your image (this forces the text to the next column).
- Insert a Continous Section Break in the right column immediately above the image's location (this pushes the text back to the left column, but below your image).
In the sample image, there is a column break after paragraph 2 (before image) and a section break (continuous) after paragraph 4 (before image).
