Setting in styles

When using styles it is possible to move to a new page each paragraph with that style. This is mostly used by styles for chapter headings. The figure below shows the window edit of style Heading 1. Suffice it to find the icon Format in the lower left corner, and here … we select Paragraph, that we are already familiar with, then the procedure is the same as above. The difference is that when a paragraph will be formatted in this style, it is automatically moved to the new page. But it is still possible for the selected paragraph (either a styled or not) individually disable moving to the new page by unchecking the Insert page break before.
