Insert or remove a section break between pages in a publication

You can use sections to change the page number format or to restart page numbering within a publication. For example, you can use lowercase Roman numerals (i, ii, iii) for the introduction to your publication and then use Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3) for the main body of your publication.
