How, if even possible, can you set Notepad++ to view page-breaks? This can be done in Microsoft Word in the page-break view.

There's no way to get Notepad++ to draw a line across the screen to represent page-breaks like Word does, and I'm not aware of a plugin which adds this.

You can get it to display non-printing characters by View->Show Symbol->Show All Characters, which will let you see where the breaks are, but this will also display all the other non-printing characters like line feeds.

Notepad++ is not a WYSIWYG document creation tool like Word is. A page break implies a page of paper, and Notepad++ was not designed for the purpose of paper document creation.
