Note:

  1. Never apply the section break to the first page
  2. To stop the previous section to the next pages wherever you want, apply the section break to the next page, rather than the page that you want to stop. For example, to stop at the 7th page, click the 8th page.
  3. To start the new section, apply the section break to the same page except for the first page.
