Word 2003: Section Breaks

Word 2003: Section Breaks

In order to be able to create different Headers and Footers throughout your document, or even different sets of page numbering for that matter, you need to have a good understanding of Section Breaks.

Section Breaks allow you to separate some pages from others so you can apply different page formatting.

For instance, there may be times when you have a need to display one page in a multiple page document in Landscape orientation while the rest of the document is in Portrait orientation.

 

This type of section break also works really well when you’re setting up any document for double-sided printing.
