Inserting Text Wrapping Breaks
To change page layout settings and insert a section break at the same time, either place
your insertion point at the location where you wish to start the new settings or select
the portion of the document that will contain the settings, and then display the Page
Setup dialog box. From the Apply To list at the bottom of any tab in the dialog box,
select This Point Forward, Selected Text (if you had previously selected text in your
document), or Whole Document, accordingly. After you make your modifications and
click OK, section breaks will be inserted into your document as needed and your page
layout settings will be applied to that section.
Inserting Text Wrapping Breaks
Most of the section breaks you add in Word 2010 are pretty straightforward; you position
the cursor where you want the break and choose the type of break you want. This section
explores text wrapping breaks because they behave a little differently by adjusting the low
of your text.
When you add a text wrapping break, Word forces a text break for layout reasons without
starting a new paragraph. For example, you might want to break text at a particular
position to appear before and after an inline table, graphic, or object, or you might want to
present lines of poetry without applying the document’s paragraph style (including
paragraph spacing) to each line of text. The Text Wrapping Break option is similar to inserting
a manual line break in your document, which you can add by pressing Shift+Enter.
Frequently, text wrapping breaks are used to separate text from Web page objects or other
text and are the equivalent of inserting a <br/> tag in XHTML code.
Saving Formats as Your Own Templates
