Understanding Sections, Section Breaks, and Page Breaks
- A sectionis a portion of a document in which you set certain page formatting options (such as page numbering, headers and footers, etc).
- You can insert section breaks to divide a document into sections, and then apply different formatting options to each section.
- For example, you can create a single page numbering scheme throughout a document, or create different page numbering schemes within each section of a document.
- To insert a section break, from the Page Layout tab, click Breaks and select one of the options under Section Breaks.
- To see where section breaks appear in a document, you must have Show/Hide paragraph marks turned on. From the Home tab click the icon in the Paragraph group.
- You can use section breaks to divide a large document into logical sections such as title pages, chapters, posters and handouts sections.
- Microsoft Word automatically numbers each section consecutively beginning with “Section 1.” To see how many sections a document has, turn on the headers and footers. From the Insert tab, in the Header & Footer group, click Header/Footer and then click Edit Header/Footer. - Microsoft Word automatically inserts page breaks for you after each page, or you can force a manual page break at any location by pressing CTRL+ENTER.
