Page break in RH10

Dec 12, 2012 11:50 AM



I am trying to insert page break to some of my topics so they would start to a new page in printed documentation, but page break doesn't seem to work. I wonder why and what's the workaround to solve this issue, if any?


For example:

Within a topic, I have:

     Heading 1

          Heading 2


I wanted Heading 2 to be in the next page in printed documentation. Is that possible at all?

    I believe it is covered in RoboHelp Tour for RoboHelp 9 on my site.


    It was designed for printing topics in online help rather than printed docs. Think it does work there also though.


    Check my site. Post back if not resolved. I will look in morning. Late here now.

    There is a macro on my site that was designed for a similar problem.



    Not sure if it will help here but if it doesn't you can close the document without saving.

    Recreate that in a small demo project. See the Contact page on my site and send the project as instructed there. Do make sure you include a link to this thread and please do not email the project direct.

    This was a variation on a method that I sent tanborj and it was later found not to be entirely satisfactory. I have since sent this solution that provides an easy alternative to the method in RoboHelp which has a bug in it.


    Open your CSS in a text editor. Add this


    .break { page-break-before: always; }


    (You can change the name of the first instance of "break" to anything you like but no spaces).


    1. In a topic go to what you want to be on the next page.
    2. Put the cursor at the beginning of that line.
    3. In the style dropdown you will find "break" or whatever you called it.
    4. Select that.
    5. You will see the page break symbol above the line.
