Working with Page Break – Python .docx Module

  • Last Updated : 03 Jan, 2021

Prerequisites: docx

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.

Syntax: doc.add_page_break()


  • Import module
  • Create docx object
  • Add add_page_break() function whenever the control need to be shift to a new page
  • Save document.



# Import docx NOT python-docx
import docx
# Create an instance of a word document
doc = docx.Document()
# Add a Title to the document
doc.add_heading('GeeksForGeeks', 0)
# Adding a paragraph
doc.add_heading('Page 1:', 3)
doc.add_paragraph('GeeksforGeeks is a Computer Science portal for geeks.')
# Adding a page break
# Adding a paragraph
doc.add_heading('Page 2:', 3)
doc.add_paragraph('GeeksforGeeks is a Computer Science portal for geeks.')
# Now save the document to a location'gfg.docx')
