One possibility would be to create a palette with buttons which set the
PageBreakAbove or BageBreakBelow option for the current cell.

You can also customize the menus, did you know that? There's a file, where the definition for the menu is given. You then can
use something like Item["&Page Break above", PageBreakAbove->Toggle,
Scope->SelectionCell] (I have not tried this, but I think it should
work) in the file to insert a menuitem where you can
switch PageBreaks.

You could do this, too, although it is a rather dirty solution, I'd say.

Hope this helps
