How to Make Columns in Notion

Columns are the most vital part of any table. They are used to distinguish crucial pieces of information. Adding any amount of columns in Notion is possible.

Notion allows you to group your text or images without creating a table. Sometimes, it makes sense to put pieces of information next to each other. You can use the drag and drop method to format your text into columns in these instances. 

You have complete control to put a photo or text wherever you want by dragging and dropping content. Any content block in Notion (including lines of text) can be dragged and dropped around the page, including rows on tables and cards on boards.

Here’s how to drag and drop text into a column:
