In a multi-page table (10+ pages!) it is sometimes desirable to force a page break before the natural end of page. This can help to make the table more readable. The effect is that not all pages will have the same length of table. Is this possible?

I had to add additional blank rows to get the page breaking in a table to work.....

It's not possible directly. However, sometimes disallowing specific rows to break across pages would help you to get desired result. You may find the setting in Table->Properties->Text Flow tab, or Table->Break Across Pages.

Just want to emphasize that the setting is per-row, so it will apply to currently selected rows (see tdf#93696 and tdf#104443). If you don't select rows, it will apply to whole table.
