Description H. Wolter 2015-04-28 09:40:48 UTC
I am definitely missing a button to create a new page. While I am confident to be able to this with "Seitenumbruch"(German, presumably Page Break) for adding a new page after the current one IF I FINALLY SUCCED FINDING THE COMMAND SOMEWHERE BURIED IN THE MENUES maybe with the help of HELP, adding a new page at the end may require some lenthy scrolling. This is not user friendly.
(Or does MS have a patent on this? I heard that in the US you can get a patent on everything even for the most obvious while in Germany Konrad Zuse was declined a patent on the computer in 1956 because it was not innovative enough compared to mechanical calculators.)
So I need 2 buttons on top, one "immediate new page", one  "new page at the end of document" with the cursor jumping to the start of page.

Hello Wolter,

A page break button in the toolbar was added in 4.4 and you can add it to your 4.3 version by customizing the toolbar, but unfortunately a suitable icon isnt available for it. If you'd like to insert a page break by keyboard shortcut, this can be done with Ctrl + Enter.

About inserting a page break at the end of the doc, that functionality isnt currently available in the manual break dialog or with a shortcut. As inserting the page break at the end of the document is to jump the cursor to that location, you can press ctrl + end to jump to the end of the document and ctrl + enter to then add a new page break.
