Working with Page Break – Python .docx Module
Word documents contain formatted text wrapped within three object levels. Lowest level- run objects, middle level- paragraph objects and highest level- document object. So, we cannot work with these documents using normal text editors. But, we can manipulate these word documents in python using the python-docx module.
Python docx module allows user to manipulate docs by either manipulating the existing one or creating a new empty document and manipulating it. It is a powerful tool as it helps you to manipulate the document to a very large extend. You can also add page breaks using this module. To add a page break in a word document you can use add_page_break() method.
This method adds a hard page break in the document and creates a new paragraph object. This is an essential paragraph styling tool. Whenever the requirement is to start a new page, mostly cases where you want a new page for a new topic, a single method is sufficient. It helps increase clarity and improves presentation to reap the most of word.
