In Microsoft Word 2013 is there a way to view the margins so I can see where the limits of my current column are (one column or multiple columns)?

The closest I have gotten to this is by checking the Show text boundaries settings in the Advanced section of the Options window, however, this only outlines where the current text is but not the margins (limits/boundaries) of the column.


You can get crop marks for the entire page in File -> Options -> Advanced -> Show document content -> Show crop marks. Unfortunately this doesn't show column limits, but helps with the page margins.
