Except for one thing. The ellipsis is to be treated as a word. If it is at the end of a sentence it consists of the three dots and then an additional period for a total of four dots. If it indicates a change of scenery or scene it is still treated that way and with no asterisks. A change of scene may be indicated with an ellipsis or it may be indicated with a blank line or it may be indicated with both. The three asterisks are to be used when there is a blank line that we want to retain though. Most often that is an indication of a passage of time or an indication of scene, but it does not necessarily have to be. Whatever it indicates it is replaced with three asterisks. It has nothing to do with the ellipsis.

Hi Reggie,
This looks correct to me for a book where the page numbers are at the bottom.

    Received a book back for more editing.  Before I send back, I am
    trying to proof the new way.  Want to know if this is correct.  I
    understand about the font and points.  However, have a few other

     1. When putting an ellipsis to denote change of scenery it is
        done like this?

    Line of text

    * * *

    Line of text

     2. If the number is at the bottom of the page it is done like this?

    Last Line of text on a page

    page number

    Page break

     3. When there is a chapter name (understanding bolding and points
        and fon) it is set up like this?

    First line below page break

    Chapter number and title

    First line of text

     4. When there is the start of a new page it is done like this.

    Line at top of page

    First line of text

    I will say thanks to anyone who helps.  Want to get this book up
    and not have it come back for even more editing.
