Can I Automatically put page breaks before every section (Reference Level) in a Doc?

I am making a document and adding section headings to the TOC with the "add text" to level 1,2, or 3 on the "reference" ribbon.   So that I can automatically build a toc and for easy jumping in the navigation pane.

I would really like each section to start at the top of a page. (i.e. be preceded by a page break).

Is there an automatic way to do this?

Perhaps I don't understand the problem but the are four types of section break. The one at the top of the list in Page Layout tab, Page Setup group, Breaks  button dropdown is Next Page which does just that.

You could use the find/replace if you are using a special sequence to start each section.  For example , if you start each section header with a -- you could then do a find replace on -- with ^m

^m is the manual page break in the "special" drop down button on the replace window.

Ah, perhaps the questioner is using the word 'section' generically as opposed to a Section which refers to part of a Word Document.

There is a property of paragraphs labelled 'Page break before'. If all the section headings have the same style, you could set that in the paragraphs' style.

For the best help, I suggest that you post a sample part of the document, redacted if necessary.

I would really like each section to start at the top of a page. (i.e. be preceded by a page break).
To generate the TOC, you use the styles Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3, etc.

In order to have each section (i.e. each occurence of Heading 1) start on a new page:

(As GrahamSkan mentions) Modify the paragraph style Heading 1:Modify Heading 1If you have an existing document, go back to step 2:Apply to all Heading 1 paragraphs
