Chapter 4. The Layout of the Page > 4.5. Visual formatting

4.5. Visual formatting

The final stage of the production of an important document often needs some hand-formatting to avoid bad page breaks. For this purpose, standard LaTeX offers the \pagebreak, \nopagebreak, \newpage, and \clearpage commands as well as the \samepage declaration, although the latter is considered obsolete in LaTeX2ε. A \samepage declaration together with a suitable number of \nobreak commands lets you request that a certain portion of your document be kept together. Unfortunately, the results are often not satisfactory; in particular, LaTeX will never make a page larger than its nominal height (\textheight) but rather moves everything in the scope of the \samepage declaration to the next page. The LaTeX2ε command \enlargethispage* described below offers an alternative approach.
