What are people’s thoughts on page breaks?
I got into a weird state that I suspect may have been due to Manual Page Breaks in the wrong places. It has gone now, so there is no point trying to describe it here. But the Manual Page Break seems counter-intuitive. The last time I asked something like this, I was asked to file a bug. This time I am less confident, but I will file one if people agree.
Sticking in a Page Break into the text ought to divide the text at that point into this page and the next page. The next page will have a page format that will be the default to follow the current format. So far, so good.
You can insert a line or column page break if the page format supports it. Maybe these choices should be greyed out if the page format does not support them, but this is no big deal. I guess this can wrap onto the next page if we exceed the row or line count, but I have not used this.
The Page Format is a property of the current page. This is presumably the page with the cursor in, though you may be able to change the page with the arrow keys without placing the cursor anywhere. It does not seem right to insert a Manual Page Break it where the cursor currently is (if that is what it does). The page format and number would normally be inherited from the previous page, but there could be a dialogue to force a particular page format, and/or override the page number a lot like the Manual Page Break dialogue, or we could restore the defaults.
