Chapter 5. Formatting a Document with Word > Inserting New Pages and Sections

Inserting New Pages and Sections

When you fill a page, Word inserts a page break and starts a new page. As you add or delete text, this soft page break moves. A soft page break appears as a dotted gray line in Normal view. To start a new page before the current one is filled, insert a hard page break that doesn't shift as you edit text. A hard page break appears as a dotted gray line with the text Page Break centered in Normal view. A section is a mini-document within a document that stores margin settings, page orientation, page numbering, and so on. In Page Layout view, you can show or hide the white space on the top and bottom of each page and the gray space between pages.
