Shortcuts to Success: Move Text to the Next Column

Sure, there are huge lists of InDesign keyboard shortcuts out there, but are you going to sit down and memorize them all? We're here to help you learn some handy new ones, one by one, making it easier to add them to your mental list. Each week, we'll highlight a different shortcut to help you work faster, better and smarter.
Force Text to the Next Column

Let's say you want to push a subhead to the top of the next column in a chain of text. Instead of resizing the text frame, or adding more words, click with the Type Tool in front of the text that you want to push to the next column, and type enter.
