Word tip – How to Adding Breaks in Word 2010

Posted In MS office - By Techtiplib on Tuesday, April 10th, 2012 With No Comments »

Word has several different types of breaks that you can add to your document to change the layout and pagination. Each type of break serves a different purpose and will affect the document in different ways. Page breaks move text to a new page before reaching the end of a page, while section breaks create a barrier between parts of the document for formatting purposes. Column breaks split text in columns at a specific point. In this Word tip, you’ll know how to insert and delete breaks.

Word tip

Breaks allow you to have more control over the layout of your document. You might use a page break if you’re writing a paper that has a bibliography to ensure that the bibliography starts on a new page. Or, you might use a column break if you are using columns and want them to be arranged in a particular way. Below is Word tip for you to insert or delete break:

To Insert a Break:

  1. Place the insertion point where you want the break to appear.
  2. Select the Page Layout tab.
  3. Click the Breaks command. A menu appears.
  4. Click the desired break option to create a break in the document.

To Delete a Break:

Breaks are hidden by default. If you want to delete a break, then you’ll probably want Word to show the breaks so you can find them for editing.

1. From the Home tab, click the Show/Hide command.

2. Double-click the break to select it.

3. Press the Backspace or Delete key to delete the break.
