Default Continuous Break is BROKEN

I'm using Word XP. Sometimes, but not always, when I insert a
continuous break, it acts like a nex-page break. I want Continuous to
be continuous.

Suggestions?

Default Continuous Break is BROKEN

Word will change a Continuous break to a Next Page break if the change in
formatting is something that can't be accomplished on the same page (a
change in page orientation, for example). For a specific example, see

Well, that doesn't make sense in this circumstances. There's no
formatting or layout changes. I need the continuous section break in
order to insert a custom footnote on that page alone.

Plan B?

Keep looking for the cause of the problem (ie in your document). Not much
milage in asking the forum to guess what you might have done wrong.

Custom footnote? Footer?

If it is a footer, you can do this without a section break and continuous
section breaks can make tracking problems with footers very difficult to
figure out. If you are trying to do a special footer for just one page, take
a look at http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Number...eNumbering.htm. For
even more, see http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/Page_Numbering.htm.

By the way, Jezebel is trying to tell you that you haven't given us enough
information so that anyone can make a helpful guess at what is going wrong
for you.

Thanks, Charles. I wondered what Jez was trying to do.

Using Word XP. Custom Footnote. Most footnotes are numbered with
each section starting over at 1. (150+ sections). Here and there I
need an * or ** footnote. So I put in continuous page breaks before
and after the paragraph that needs the *, and choose a custom
footnote. Then I have to start the next section's footnotes with
whatever numeral is appropriate -- not at one.

The problem is, some of the continuous pagebreaks aren't. They jump
me to the next page.

I've tried changing all the styles so there is NO keep-with-next and
NO widow/orphan control. No joy.

I hope that's enough info.

It is more info. That's for sure.

Tables?

How much is jumped to the next page?

What happens if, instead of inserting a section break, you press the Enter
key once? (Just wondering how much room you have to play with.)

Don't know if anyone pointed you to

Have you tried doing this without any breaks at all? I just tried the
following:

1. Inserted three footnotes (numbered 1, 2, 3).

2. Between footnotes 2 and 3, inserted a footnote with custom mark *.

This footnote has an asterisk, and footnotes 1, 2, and 3 remain unaffected.
No section breaks of any kind. Note, however, that this must be a true
*custom* footnote, using the "custom mark." You can't do this by selecting
the *, *, series of symbols as the "Number format." This means that you
would have to manually type in an asterisk or two asterisks or whatever
other symbols you need, and they would not update automatically if you added
additional custom notes, but at least you wouldn't have the extra burden and
bother of section breaks.
