Session 3.1
To insert a section break after the title:
1. Position the insertion point immediately to the left of the “E” in the heading “Executive
Summary.” You want the text above this heading to be on a separate title page and the
executive summary to begin on the second page of the report.
2. Click Insert on the menu bar, and then click Break to open the Break dialog box. See
Figure 3-7.

The Break dialog box can be a bit confusing, so you should study it carefully before contin-
uing with these steps. The option buttons under “Break types” allow you to insert three dif-
ferent types of breaks, including a page break , which moves the text after it onto a new
page. (You don’t need to be concerned with the other options right now.) The four option
buttons under “Section break types” allow you to insert four types of section breaks. Of
these, the two most important types of section breaks are a Next page section break, which
starts a new section on a new page, and a Continuous section break, which inserts a section
break without starting a new page. If you simply want to start a new page, you can click
the Page break option button in the Break dialog box. If you want to start a new page and
insert a section break, you should click the Next page option button in the Break dialog
box. Because you want the document to have a title page, and because you want to format
the title page differently than the rest of the document, you will insert a section break that
starts a new page. In other words, you need to click the Next page option button.
3. Under “Section break types,” click the Next page option button, and then click the OK
button. A double-dotted line and the words “Section Break (Next Page)” appear before the
heading “Executive Summary,” indicating that you have inserted a break that starts a new
section on the next page. The status bar indicates that the insertion point is on page 2,
section 2. See Figure 3-8.
