    styles showing up where I don't want them to (Word 2000)

    I have set up styles by creating a style and then clicking in the styles box and hitting enter. However on the page (and this happens often and my only solution is to have a paragraph return at the top) before my heading one (which is set to 5% fill and line above and below text) the page break on the page before has the 5% fill... not the lines mind you, just the fill. What, oh what, am I doing wrong and how can I fix this. this only happens once in a blue moon when i'm creating documents! thanks - Renee

    Hi Renee. May I suggest using the paragraph format "page break before" instead of an actual page break? A page break following a paragraph is actually the first character of the next paragraph. It's a Word thing.

    Hi Renee,

    You are not doing anything wrong. It's a general problem with manual page breaks that most of us have run into.

    The work-around is to avoid manual page breaks, and apply the page break as paragraph formatting ("Format > Paragraph", textflow-tab: check "Page break before").
