How To Add A Page On Google Docs

Creating and organizing documents is much easier when you can add multiple pages. Adding pages to your documents can be useful if you want to separate different topics, or if you want to make sure that certain parts of your document are easier to find. If you want to separate text into different pages, the easiest way to accomplish this is by adding a page break.

A page break in Google Docs is a type of formatting that indicates the end of one page and the beginning of a new page within the same document. It is often used to separate different sections of a document, such as chapters, appendices, or references.

When you insert a page break in Google Docs, all the content after the break will move to the next page, even if there is still space on the current page.

In this guide, we will show you how to add a page on Google Docs. We will explain the various ways you can insert a page break in your document.
