Default Need to keep pages intact for a book style doc

I'm going to try my best to explain what I am trying to do, I hope it makes sense!



I am trying to compile notes into a sort of reference book for my own use. I would like each subject to have its own pages, so no two subjects share a page. Basically, I want it to be like a book, and be separated the way each chapter would be separated. The way I am doing it now, I have all of my notes in a word document, and I space down to get each subject to start on the next page. This works fine for the most part, until I need to come back and edit a section. When I add or delete notes, all of the sections in the next pages get moved and I have to go through every time and space them back down so that it comes out neatly when I print it.

Is there a way to add a page break that forces each section to start on a new page even if the sections below it are modified? I hope that makes sense, I would really appreciate any help I can get!

By the way, I don't need to do this in Word, it's jut what I'm using now and I figured there might be a way. I am open to suggestions of other word processing apps.

Thanks!
AB

Create a style that includes "page break before" as part of its definition. Make sure "style for following paragraph" is set to your regular style (Normal or whatever you use).

Thanks for the response! For some reason, I am subscribed to this thread but I didn't get a notification that there was a reply. So, I forgot about this thread until now!

Anyway, I used the page break and it worked perfectly. I just didn't know the term for it, and now I know what I am doing! Thanks again.
