I have some bulleted (and numbered) lists that I would like to prevent from being split across multiple pages. Rather than have the splitting occur, I would like to have Word automatically put in a page break and start the list on the second page. Is this possible?

Keep in mind that I don't want to put in the page break manually because if I add text before the list, it might be shifted to the next page anyway.

This should be easy.

  • Select the entire list
  • Right-click and select Paragraph...
  • Go to the tab Line and Page Breaks
  • There, select the second and third option (Keep lines together and Keep with next)

Sorry for not knowing how the option are titled but I'm using a German Word so I don't know how this is labeled in the English version.

"Keep lines together" and "Keep with next" are the labels in the English version. – Kelly Tessena Keck Jun 12 '15 at 12:01
