Deleting Columns in NewWrite

If the columns were created using the Columns feature of NewWrite--that is, if each column is in its own text region--then simply select the text and hit the delete key.

If by "columns," you mean data separated by tabs, then you can't easily select individual columns of such data in NewWrite. In that case, you could copy the entire table and paste it into Text File Editor. In Text File Editor, use Find and Replace to replace the tabs with commas, thereby creating a CSV file. Import the CSV file to NewCalc where you can easily delete a column. Then copy/paste the data from NewCalc back to NewWrite, replacing the original table of text.

Using similar methods, you can sort lists, rearrange columns, or perform other such tasks for which there are no features in NewWrite itself.
