    Convert Section break (next Page)

    Here's the situation: (Word 97 SR-2)

    I've got a template with an autotext entry that has a Section break (next Page) that I want to convert to a Section break (continuous) -- or better yet, just remove it completely. When I try the later all the formatting for the above page reverts to Word defaults. <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    How do I get ride of that Section break without altering the formatting?

    Re: Convert Section break (next Page)

    Hi Kevin,

    How about the following?:

    Go to Normal view, copy the section break (which you're about to delete), and then paste it into the document right after the end of the autotext content (to create an extra section formatting buffer).

    Now go back up and delete the original section break.
    Then select the autotext content and re-save this as your autotext.

    Sorry didn't have time to test this right now; hope it works!

    Gary,

    Well, thanks for writing. I got impatient for a response and just deleted the section break and reformatted the page from scratch. No big deal, I guess. I thought I could add a section break(continuous) then delete the section break (next page), but doing so always reverts the continuous to a next page break!

    Problem solved the hard way.
