Default Can a Word page be divided into sections(like in WordPerfect)?

I'm trying to re-type some old documents in Word, and I have one WordPerfect
document that I have divided into 4 sections. I have looked everywhere in
Word for this option, but I can't find it anywhere.

FYI---In WordPerfect, each divided section has it's own margins...like
having mini pages on one page.

Try inserting four text boxes or four frames on one page.

Word doesn't quite have this concept of more than one logical page on a
physical page, at least not beyond two: for that you can use the "2 pages
per sheet" option in the Page Setup dialog.

I'm not familiar with this WP feature, but I can envision the layout in
either of two ways.

If the sheet is divided into quadrants:

1 2
3 4

You might consider using a 2x2 table, no borders, & set the cell margins to
whatever each needs to be.

If 4 consecutive parts:

1
2
3
4

You can use InsertBreakContinuous Section Break at the end of each of the
first 3 sections. Although that would allow setting separate margins for each
section, many printers have a problem 'switching horses in mid stream', so
section breaks or not I'd be tempted to use right & left indents rather than
varying the actual margin settings.

If you want text to flow from one mini-page to another, insert text boxes and
link them. If each mini-page will be independent, then a table of 2 rows and
2 columns is the easiest to work with.
