putting page breaking into menu


i mentioned in an earlier note  how to change the text color selection in
the menu of 3.0

one more thing i need is to be able adjust page breaks to be where i want
them and i want to do this from the menu as i could in 2.2.. 

turn out this is also easily done in 3.0 using the MenuSetup.tr file.
here's how:

locate the file

Mathematica/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/TextResources/Mac/MenuSetup.tr

insert where you like [depending on where you want to this to appear in
the menu]:

Menu["Page Breaking", 
{
Item["Page Break Above Cell", PageBreakAbove->True, Scope->SelectionCell],
Item["Page Break Below Cell", PageBreakBelow->True, Scope->SelectionCell],
Item["No Break Above Cell", PageBreakAbove->False, Scope->SelectionCell],
Item["No Break Below Cell", PageBreakBelow->False, Scope->SelectionCell]
}],

way cool!


cautionary note: its a good idea to make these changes on a copy of the
MenuSetup.tr file [not the original] and then quit mathematica before
replacing the original file with the modified version.
