Chapter 6. Formatting Pages > Creating Multiple Sections

Creating Multiple Sections

A document can contain multiple sections, each of which can have different page setup attributes: different margins, page numbering, and headers and footers. A new document contains only one section until you insert a section break. Then you can apply page formatting to the new section independently.

To create a new section:

1.
Position the insertion point where you want the new section to begin (Figure 6.9).

Figure 6.9. Place the insertion point at the location for a section break.


2.
From the Insert menu, choose Break.

3.
In the Break dialog box , choose one of the Section Breaks options (Figure 6.10).

Figure 6.10. Break dialog box.


4.
Click OK.

Word inserts a double dotted line labeled “Section Break” (Figure 6.11).
