    Hey Gary, I have reports with a mix of text and graphics. I like the text flow of the word processing mode, but I have to be aware of how graphics will impact it. My workflow is write all the text and then place images after, controlling how the text behaves around graphics. What's the best strategy to use when I want to jump to a new page? Inserting a page in processing mode places a hidden code that can throw text out of whack when I insert graphics. Should I use Sections instead?

    nick: I would just use Page Breaks. That's what they are for. But you can use Sections if you want. Learn how to use both and decide. See https://macmost.com/understanding-page-and-section-breaks-in-pages.html

    Gary, thanks for the video. I've authored & published 4 books using MS Word for the interior text and Pages for the front & back covers, and the flaps. I've tried several page layout apps and nothing worked as well as Pages. However, I was not using page layout to design the covers with graphics and text. You just made it much easier for me to show how to use page layout especially continuing text from the front flap of the dust jacket to the back flap. Again thanks.
