Manage Page Breaks

As you set up the document structure, you might want to insert a page or column break to force a specific part of the document content to start on a new page or column.

Access Select options from the menu bar at the top of the Document Editor window, or right-click within either:

  • The 'Content' panel of the Document Template Designer or
  • The text area of the document

Force a page break

Select the 'Insert | Insert Break | Page Break' menu option, or press Ctrl+Enter.

The forced page break is indicated by a labeled solid line; if this is not visible, click on the icon in the Toolbar above the text panel.

Create a column break

Move the cursor to the appropriate point in the column text and select the 'Insert | Insert Break | Column Break' menu option. The break is indicated by a labeled 'dot and dash' line.

Normally in a multiple column section, the text flows from the end of one column to the top of the next column; a column break forces the text to the next column before the current column is completely filled.

Delete a break

A page break or column break is indicated by a labeled line. To delete the break, move the cursor onto this line and press the Delete key.
