No, no, no! Room for sideheads is a flow property. But the column layout is a frame property, and you can change column layout whenever you want by inserting a new frame and connecting it to the preceding one (select the preceding frame first, then the new one, and then select Format > Customize Layout > Connect Text Frames). Your page can start 1-column, switch to 2-col in the middle, and then return to 1-col. It's done all the time. HTH, and good luck with the deadline. Richard ------ Richard G.
