Where are the section breaks in a document in Word 2016 for Mac?

When you’ve added section breaks in your document the easiest way to see where they begin and end is to first display all formatting marks.

When Word is configured to display all formatting marks, you can recognize section breaks by their double horizontal lines across the page and text in the center that identifies the type of section break. The following figure, for example, shows a Continuous section break.

A continuous section break is visible when Word displays all nonprinting characters.
