I have a master document with several sub-documents. I would like to have one of the sub-documents start on a separate page. I assumed that I could edit the section (i.e., link) properties and just tell it to start on a separate page. No such luck.

The only option I have found is to insert "text" into the master document and then insert a page break into this text section. The major downside of this approach is that inserting a page break moves the current empty line down to the beginning of the next page and then my section starts directly after the empty line.

My hack to deal with this, is to make the font size for the empty line really small, so that it doesn't take up much space.

There has to be a better way. Does anybody have any other ideas?

Thanks.

With your cursor in the 1st paragraph of the sub-doc do Format > Paragraph > Text Flow tab and put a check in Enable in the Breaks section.

Ahh, that works.

Although, in truth I think it would make more sense if this type of formatting was done at the master document level, since I may re-use the sub-document in another master document and not want it to be on a separate page...but this works for the time being.

Thanks a lot.
