Note
If you prefer to use a dialog box to set up your sections, you can click the dialog
launcher in the Page Setup group (on the Layout tab) to display the Page Setup dialog
box. The first group of settings in the Page Setup dialog box deals with sections. You
can choose Continuous, New Column, New Page, Even Page, or Odd Page in the
Section Start list, just as you can in the Breaks gallery. As always, you can change any of
your selections at any time, and making changes in the Breaks gallery later will carry
through to the settings you entered in the Page Setup dialog box.
