  4. You see an image containing icons for the existing channels and columns contained on the tab.
  5. Locate the position where you want to add the new column and click the Add Column button. Add Column
  6. You see a page with options that allow you to set the relative sizes of each column that the tab will contain.
  7. Using the width fields, enter percentage values for each column. Note that the combined total of all fields should equal 100%.
  8. To set the column widths, click Save Widths. You see the new column displayed in the layout image.
