Inserting a section break
Inserting a section break
Within a Word 2013 document, you can change the margins,
page orientation, page size, and number of columns. To sepa-
rate any two regions of the document—called sections —where
these characteristics differ, you must insert a section break.
You can decide whether you want each new section to begin
on the same page as the preceding text or to start on a new
page. You can also choose to force the new section to begin on
an even page or an odd page: Word will automatically insert a
blank page at the end of the preceding section, if necessary, to
accommodate the page numbering.
Create a new section
1 Click in your document where you want the new section to begin.
2 On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Breaks and
then, in the Section Breaks gallery that opens, click one of the four
entries: Next Page, Continuous, Even Page, or Odd Page.

TIP To see section breaks in your document, on the Home tab,
in the Paragraph group, click Show/Hide ¶. A section break
appears as a double dotted line and displays the words Section Break
and the type of the break.

TIP You can use the search box in the Navigation pane to find
section breaks. First, click Show/Hide ¶ to render the breaks
visible. Enter the code ^b in the search box and click the up or down
arrow button in the pane to locate the previous or next section break.
