I also use a PageBreak para format to insert manual page breaks. I
think I just cloned it from our basic para format (Normal), but set the
space below to 700pt. To make it visible, I set the colour to blue and
set tabs stops at 5mm intervals across the whole text column, with the
last tab stop set 5mm in from the right margin (so I can still see the
para marker). I then inserted an equal number of tab commands in the
numbering tab in Para Designer. So, when I insert a PageBreak, I can
see a row of blue tab text symbols across the page. I also set the Next
Pgf Tag to Normal.
I've used this method for years after reading about it on this list and
it works well. I also find it handy when I'm working in a draft manual
and I want to move any text I'm editing onto a new page so it doesn't
break across two pages.
