Column Guides Are Unlocked But I Still Can't Move Columns In A Text Frame


Question

I'm using Adobe InDesign CC. I have a three column text frame and I need the middle frame to be just a bit larger than the left and right columns. I have unlocked Column Guides by unchecking View > Grids & Guides > Unlock Column Guides, but with both the Selection Tool and Direct Selection Tool I don't get the cursor changing nor does clicking and dragging on the guide do anything but move the entire text frame.

I have read tutorials with pictures and I see that it's possible, however I must be missing something. Help!

EDIT: This is a blue text frame I'm talking about, not the purple column guides that would be established in the document settings.

Accepted Answer

You can't alter the width of an individual column within a text frame, they all have to be equal. To create columns of unequal width or height, create threaded text frames (a story) side-by-side on either a document page or a master page.
