How to View Page Breaks in Word 2007

By K.C. Winslow

Page breaks can be inserted manually or automatically in Microsoft Word 2007. Automatic page breaks occur based on the page size specified for the document and the margins you set. Page breaks appear differently according to the layout option you are using to view the document.

Step 1

Open the document in Word 2007.

Step 2

Click the "View" tab in the ribbon along the top of the screen.

Step 3

Click the "Draft" icon in the "Document Views" menu. The various document views display page breaks differently and the Draft view makes it easier to view page breaks, according to the Microsoft Support website. The Draft view shows the page breaks and spacing without the page margins, making it easier to see the exact location of the break.

Step 4

Use the scroll bar on the right side of the window to move through the document. The page breaks appear as a dashed line with the words "Page Break" in the center.
