Section breaks overview
Section breaks overview
Word uses four kinds of section breaks. What kind of break you use depends on why you’re
breaking the text:
Next Page: Causes the new section to begin on the next page
Continuous: Enables the current and next section to coexist on the same
page. Not all kinds of formatting can coexist on the same page, so even if you
choose Continuous, Word will sometimes force the differently formatted content
onto a new page. Section formatting that can be different on different parts of
the same page includes the number of columns, left and right margins, and line
numbering.
Even Page: Causes the new section to begin on the next even page. If the following
page would have been odd, then that page will be blank (unless it has header/
footer content, which can include watermarks).
Odd Page: Causes the new section to begin on the next odd page. If the following
page would have been even, then that page will be blank, except as noted for the
Even Page break.
If you set up a letter in which the fi rst page is to be printed on letterhead but
subsequent pages are to be printed on regular stock (using different paper feed methods),
the fi rst page should be in a separate document section, because you will probably not
want it to display any header or footer information that might overprint the preprinted
letterhead contents. If you set up a letter for which the fi rst or last page is an envelope,
the envelope must be in a separate section — for multiple reasons, because envelopes
typically use a different printer paper source, different orientation (landscape), and
different margin settings.
Inserting or deleting a section break
To insert a section break:
1. Click to position the insertion point at the location where you want the break
to appear.
2. In the Page Setup group of the Page Layout tab, click Breaks. As shown in
Figure 8.7, Word displays a variety of kinds of breaks, including the four types of
section breaks under Section Breaks at the bottom.
