Replace All Section Breaks in Microsoft Word


How to replace all section breaks in a Microsoft Word document with page breaks? I want to rebuild sections.



If you have many section breaks in a document and want to replace all of them with page breaks, you can use the "Replace All" function as given below:

1. Click "Home" > "Replace". You will see the Replace tab of the Find and Replace dialog box.

2. Enter "^b" in the "Find what" field. "^b" is the control code for section break.

3. Enter "^m" in the "Replace with" field. "^m" is the control code for page break.

4. Click the "Replace All" button.
