## Page Breaks and Other Breaks

Page breaks allow you to specify where a new page will begin in a document. You can create page breaks by manually inserting a break where you need one. You can also specify breaks in your paragraph formatting so that a particular paragraph, such as a heading, will always begin on a new page.
