Demo: Take control of page breaks in your Word document

Office demo Have you ever printed what you thought was a finished document, only to find that pages didn't break where you expected? Or maybe you laboriously added page breaks by hand — and then faced fixing them all after revising the document? And perhaps you've wrestled with mysterious extra pages at the end of your document. Good page breaks don't usually happen just by luck, but you can easily take control. Watch these demos to find out how to manage page-break options and achieve the best pagination for your document.
