Section 3: Preparing Sections and Section Breaks
In this section of the program, we will look at separating the headings we created in the last section into separate pages of our document.
After you have typed all the headings, modified the styles and applied the styles to the headings, as shown here, you can proceed to create section breaks in order to place each of the level one headings on their own page.
Continue to the next slide to learn how to create sections in your document.
To create a section, position the cursor and click in front of the text where you want the section to begin. In the example shown, the cursor has been placed in front of the A of the Acknowledgements heading text.
Click on the Page Layout ribbon, click on the Breaks drop-down menu, and then click on the Next Page option.
All the headings below and including the Acknowledgements heading are now pushed down to the next page.
Continue to create new sections by placing the cursor in front of the Abstract heading, clicking on the Page Layout ribbon, clicking on the Breaks drop-down menu, and then clicking on the Next Page option. The Abstract heading will now be on its own page.
Repeat this process for the rest of the level one headings so that they each appear on their own page. Note that under the Chapter One – Introduction heading, there will also be the Introduction, Research Objectives and Research Questions headings all on the same page.
If you have followed the procedures described so far, your document should now have 13 pages in total.
