I have a number of clients who initially have problems understanding the page breaks within OpenOffice. In Microsoft Word we usually insert and then delete using the delete key or backspace.

Page breaks in OpenOffice do require a little bit more fiddling, but once you understand how pagebreaks work, then, in my opinion, you will find this is a more robust solution, giving you more options than the standard Microsoft implementation.

To remove a pagebreak from a document, which may appear like the following, complete the steps below.

Step 1: Click once in the first line on the page that want to remove the page break before. (The first line under the arrow in the image above)

Step 2: Select Format from the top menu, then select Paragraph.

Format, Paragraph

Step 3: Click on the ”Text Flow” tab.

Uncheck the break

Step 4: Uncheck (un-tick) the checkbox next to the work ”Insert” under the heading ”Breaks”. Click on OK.

Your page break will be removed.
