Well, I knew there was a reason, but I could not think of it. Stuart,
Lester, Fred, and Mike hit the nail on the head. I'll recommend sticking
with the page break that with the space after.
I'm not sure I'd suggest Matt's idea of resizing the page frame. That might
work in some cases, but you could end with a number of odd looking pages, in
Here's another quick one. Are there Windows keyboard shortcuts to switch
from Body pages to Master pages, etc.? I feel like I've seen someone use
something faster than Esc v B, Esc v R, and Esc v M that I found in the

The method you use actually produces a column break that moves the _next_
paragraph to the top of the next column. Setting Pagination to Top of Column
(or Top of Page) moves the _current_ paragraph to the top of the next column
I prefer your method. It works a bit like Special> Page Break> At Top of
Next Available Column, except that Frame doesn't see it as an override. So
Remove Overrides won't undo it. I also prefer your method because it
requires only one special paragraph format and leaves me to decide which
kind of paragraph will be at the top of the next column or page. Using the
Pagination settings requires a paragraph format for each paragraph style you
might want to have follow a break. For example, in addition to a Heading1
format that can start mid-column, you might need something like a
Heading1ColBreak format and Heading1PageBreak.
I'd keep doin' it the way you're doin' it!
