use all the format tags simultaneously to achieve any desired end. Drop in and out of multiple column formats as you like.
In addition to controlling the presentation of individual editorial items, your Linear system allows you to apply group format tags.
Multiple columns, borders, background colors, shadows and more can be independently applied to front page or section page content.
Simple commands and ready preview screens allow you to adjust and fiddle to achieve the presentation for your important content.
Each editorial section (i.e. News, Sports, etc.) can be configured with format rules to be automatically applied with each issue. These rules are easily over-riden once you want to apply custom format tags.
