Section breaks can be used to control the layout and formatting issues in a document, such as different margins on specific pages or different page number formats. To insert section breaks do the following:
Make sure your cursor is located where you would like to place the Section Break.
- Select the Page Layout Ribbon Tab (Fig 1).
- Select the drop down arrow next to Breaks in the Page setup Group (Fig 1 and Fig 2).
- Choose the type of Section break you want (Fig 2).
Two of the most commonly used Section Breaks are the Next Page Section Break (Fig 2) which creates a new section and forces everything below it to the next page, and the Continuous Section Break (Fig 2) which creates a new section without forcing everything below it to the next page.
