Hi all, Just a quick question, when in pages, if I go to insert, it tells me that the shortcut to insert a page break in my document is CMD + enter. However, pressing this key combination does not do anything. Just wondering if I am missing a trick here? Thanks :)
No I don't think you are missing any thing.
I can't speak for Pages, but in TextEdit I can insert a page break by pressing Control-Q then Control-L (note that it's Control, not Command, with these keystrokes). It is a trick I learned some time ago when I couldn't figure out a quick way to type a page break without going into the menus. It is apparently something inherited from the Unix world, where Control-Q means Quote Next Character (like a passthrough), then Control-L inserts ASCII code 12, which is a page break.
Try FN + CMD + Enter. That works for me.
