In MS Word line and page breaks give you more control over how text flows. When using Word column breaks are also useful.
Adding breaks to your document can make it appear more organized and can improve the flow of text. Depending on how you want to change the pagination or formatting of your document, you can apply a page break or a section break.

Page breaks allow you to move text to the next page before reaching the end of a page. You might use a page break if you're writing a paper that has a title page or a bibliography to ensure it starts on a new page. In our example, our chart is split between two pages. We'll add a page break so the chart will be all on one page.
By default, breaks are hidden. If you want to show the breaks in your document, click the Show/Hide command.
