Your post doesn't make sense as you are conflating two separate and
completely different programs.
1. Word Pad has nothing to do with OpenOffice. Word Pad is a simple word
processor - one very small step up from a plain text editor - that is
included with all versions of the Windows operating system. It doesn't have
the option to show or insert page breaks.
2. OpenOffice Writer is one of the applications in the suite of OpenOffice
programs. OpenOffice Writer is a full-featured word processor with the
ability to show page breaks. If you are using OO Writer, use its excellent
Help function. The OpenOffice suite is free and available from
That should give you the information you need to determine what you are
really doing and go from there.
