Page breaks can be either soft or hard. Soft page breaks occur naturally when a page is full, while hard page breaks are created manually. You can use hard page breaks within sections to move content to a new page.

- From the Edit toolbar, open the Insert menu.
- Select Page Break from the menu. A page break appears below the selected text.
To remove a hard page break, hover over the gray Page Break text in the document and click the .
Create a section break
To offset a section to a new page, you can insert a page break at the beginning of a section. A section break is created like a hard page break, except it appears at the start of a section.
To create a section break:
- From the document outline, right-click a section name.
- Select Properties to open the Section Properties panel.
- In Section Properties, check Insert page break before section.
Hovering over the dotted Page Break line within the document allows you to remove the section break.
Note: If two neighboring sections have different sized margins, a page break automatically appears between the sections and can’t be removed.
