Word - make headings 1 always show on a new page using Page break before setting

If you want your Heading 1 paragraphs to start at the top of the next page, you can accomplish this with a page break, but a better option would be to use Word’s paragraph feature to do this.

  1. Right-click your Heading 1 style and select Modify.
  2. Now click on Format then Paragraph.
  3. In the Paragraph box, select the line and page breaks tab.
  4. Check Page Break Before and click OK twice.

The Page Break Before setting, when chosen, forces the paragraph to always start at the top of the next page.
