Using Section Breaks
When you need to apply different
page formatting options to only a
portion of the document, you need to break
the document into sections . For example, when
page 1 requires different margin settings from the
rest of the document, you must break page 1 into
its own section. If only pages 16–18 need to be
printed in landscape orientation, you can break
pages 16, 17, and 18 into a section.
Paper orientation: The direction the text
prints on the paper edge
Paper source: When printing, which paper
tray the printer should pull paper from
Page borders: Bordered lines that appear
around the entire document page
Vertical alignment: The placement of text
between the top and bottom margins
Headers and footers: Text that appears at
the top or bottom of every document page
Most section breaks involve entire pages; however,
if you need different columns, they don’t
necessarily have to be on different pages. Word allows for
four different types of section breaks:
Columns: How text in newsletter-style
columns flows from one column to the next
on the same page
Page numbering: Sequential numbering
for each document page
Next page: Inserts a section break and
starts the new section on the next page.
Line numbering: How Word automatically
counts the lines in a document and displays
the appropriate number beside each line of
text
Continuous: Inserts a section break and
starts the new section on the same page.
Odd page: Inserts a section break and starts
the new section on the next odd-numbered
page.
Footnotes and endnotes: A note of text
placed at the bottom of a page or at the
end of the document typically citing a
reference used in the document
Even page: Inserts a section break and
starts the new section on the next
evennumbered page.
To insert a section break, position the mouse
where you want the new section to begin and
choose Page Layout>Page Setup>Breaks and select
the desired section break type from the drop-down
menu, as shown in Figure 4-2. A section break
controls the formatting of the text that precedes it.
Section formatting options include the following,
many of which are covered in this chapter:
Margins: The amount of space between the
text and the paper edge
Paper size: The paper size you intend to
use when printing
