This one has vexed me for some time. I’ve Googled for help, and all the help sites helpfully save “press the delete key,” without going into what happens next.
When I have a bad section break selection – let’s say the last section break in a document, because that’s where I’ve been encountering it – let’s say it should be “continuous,” but someone has created it as “next page.”
I can insert a “continuous” section break before the naughty one, and delete the naughty one – but when I do, the “continuous” section break automatically converts to a “next page” section break.
I don’t want that. Why, in fact, would anyone intend for the program to change a section’s formatting automatically when an unwanted section is removed – and specifically, to inherit the unwanted section’s formatting?
Online sites seem blissfully unaware of this problem.
Can anyone shed any light on this for me?
