Moving Section Breaks

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Moving Section Breaks.

As you work with Word, you will undoubtedly have a need to move a section break at one time or another. Section breaks in Word are treated the same as any other character. If you are using Normal view, section breaks appear as a thin double line from one side of your document to the other. If you are not working in Normal view, you may want to consider changing to Normal view, as editing special characters (such as the section break) is easier in Normal view.

To move a section break, follow these steps:

  1. Select the section break just as you would select any other text.
  2. Press Ctrl+X. The section break is cut from your document.
  3. Position the insertion point where you want to insert the section break.
  4. Press Ctrl+V. The section break is inserted in your document.
