Headers, Footers, and Page Breaks

In Google Docs headers and footers let you add important information to each page. Use the Google Docs page break feature to separate text.

Page breaks

Page 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 title page or a bibliography to ensure it starts on a new page.

To insert a page break:

  1. Place the insertion point at the location where you want the page break to appear.
