To move text to the next page, use one hard page break, not mul­ti­ple car­riage re­turns. If you use car­riage re­turns, your doc­u­ment will be­come im­pos­si­ble to edit—as soon as you change any­thing be­fore the page break, the text will go out of align­ment. The hard page break guar­an­tees con­sis­tent behavior.

  • Hard page breaks can be built into para­graph styles to en­sure that classes of para­graphs (e.g., ma­jor sec­tion head­ings) al­ways start at the top of a new page. See page break be­fore.
