Amy, A Page Break is a special character which specifies the point where one page ends and another begins. It's similar to the Paragraph Marker in Word (^p) and the New Line character in K-1000 (\n). Both the ^p and \n characters specify the point where one paragraph ends and another begins. I don't believe K-1000 has a character string to specify a Page Break, but Word uses the ^m to specify a Page Break when doing search and replaces. Maybe someone else can confirm that K-1000 doesn't or explain how K-1000 represents it in search and replaces. This special character is what the list refers to as a Hard Page Break. You'll also hear the list mentioning Soft Page Breaks, which isn't actually a Page Break character, but where one is assumed to be because there isn't any room left on the page, and the text must overflow to the next page even though a Page Break character hasn't been encountered to cause the new text to appear on the next page.

I have only scanned two books but the setting for the one was two pages as that is what I scanned together and the other one I set at one page because I that is how many I scanned at a time even though I had to reset the "settings" every time I opened the file as I did not know how to get the settings to stay the same every time I opened the file. Now I am not trying to be "cute" or playing stupid but all this discussion has gotten me confused. What exactly is meant by a page break ? Amy omst a literalist.
