As suggested inthe Mathematica Journal last issue (and some posts in
this group), you can insert in your
the following code:

			Item["Page Break Above Cell", PageBreakAbove->True,
			Item["Page Break Below Cell", PageBreakBelow->True,
			Item["No Break Above Cell", PageBreakAbove->False,
			Item["No Break Below Cell", PageBreakBelow->False,
Make a backup copy before any modification! Insertion point can be where
you want, as a special menu item, or in the format menu.

Mind the fact that there is an incoherence in the Mathematica file
management: if your machine is a PC, $MachineType returns "PC", but the
files are stored in a "Windows" directory!

Hope this helps,

Subject: [mg14484] [mg14461] Inserting/Removing Forced Page Breaks?

I'd like a fast, simple way to insert or remove forced page breaks in
Mathematica notebooks (such as used to be available as a menu command
in v 2.0), without opening the Option Investigator or digging into cell

I'm thinking I could do this by redefining one of the cell styles to be
a "Page Break" style with no content, vanishing height and
PageBreakBelow->True, so I could just insert or delete a "page break
cell" in this style anywhere I wanted to force a break..

Other better ways to do this?

Thanks -- siegman at
