In MS Word line and page breaks give you more control over how text flows. When using Word column breaks are also useful.
When you're working on a multi-page document, there may be times when you want to have more control over how exactly the text flows. Breaks can be helpful in these cases. There are many types of breaks to choose from depending on what you need, including page breaks, section breaks, and column breaks.

In our example, the section headers on page three (Monthly Revenue and By Client) are separated from the table on the page below. And while we could just press Enter until that text reaches the top of page four, it could easily be shifted around if we added or deleted something in another part of the document. Instead, we'll insert a page break.
By default, breaks are invisible. If you want to see the breaks in your document, click the Show/Hide command on the Home tab.
