Troubleshooting

How to Tell Where One Section Stops and the Next One Begins

Continuous section breaks can be a little tricky. Unless you change the number of columns after a continuous section break, or put some sort of "spacer" between the section above and the section below, a reader might not even notice that there is a break. So, for example, if you have a three-column list of the names of full-time employees, balanced with a continuous section break, followed by a three-column list of part-time employees, it will be exceedingly difficult to tell where the full-timers end and the part-timers begin.

One way to force a visual separation is to select the first line following the continuous section break. (In this example, you'd create a blank line after the last full-time employee, and before the first part-timer, and select it.) Click the Column button on the toolbar and select 1 Column. That makes the blank line span the entire width of the page—giving a visual cue that one list has ended, while another has begun.
