You can add one jump of section in Microsoft Word , so we can split large paragraphs of text. This is a very useful function not only for dividing the text into pages, but also for multi-column layouts..

Microsoft Word has dozens of options to adjust any kind of document to our needs, it even allows us to add fonts in Windows and Mac to fully customize each of our jobs. Today we will see how to add a section break in Microsoft's office suite. It's very easy!

Insert a section break in Microsoft Word

The first thing we will do is click anywhere on the page. This is where we are going to add a new section, therefore, the ideal would be to avoid dividing words or sentences. What we really should do is look for opportunities to break the page at the end of a paragraph or even a sentence.

Next, we are going to click on the "Designs" tab in the Word toolbar at the top

Once we are here, we will have to click on "Breaks" in "Page Settings" to open a new menu that has all the options to perform page and section breaks..

In "Section breaks", we will have to choose the type of break that we want to insert into the page. If we are not sure which one is the best for us, we can see a brief description of each one.

  • Next page: breaks the text at the cursor. Everything to your right or below it moves to its own page.
  • Continuous: starts a new section on the same page. This is generally used in documents that have multiple columns.
  • Even page: it will start a new section on the next even page.
  • Odd Page - A new section will start on the next odd page.
