Inserting Page Breaks

As you create your document, Word automatically starts a new page when you fill the current page with text or other document items (such as graphics, tables, and so on). However, you can insert your own page breaks in the document as needed. These types of page breaks are often referred to as hard , or manual, page breaks.

To insert a page break into your document, follow these steps:

  1. Place the insertion point in the document where you want to force a page break.

  2. Select Insert , Break . The Break dialog box appears.

  3. Make sure the Page Break option button is selected, and then click OK .

A page break is placed in your document. In the Normal view, the page break appears as a dashed line across the page, with "Page Break" denoted at the center of the line. In the Print Layout view, you can move to the new page by clicking the Next Page button on the bottom of the vertical scrollbar.


Use the Keyboard to Place a Page Break You can also place a page break in your document using the keyboard. Hold down the Ctrl key, and then press the Enter key.

To remove a page break, switch to the Normal view (select View, Normal ). The page break appears as a dotted line in the document and is denoted as a "page break." Select the page break with a mouse and press Delete to remove it.
