    page breaks in wordpad

    I cannot seem to insert page breaks or page numbers in my wordpad documents.
    This is a pretty basic function. Am I doing something wrong, or is it not
    possible?

    Not possible - it is only a text editor with some limited formatting
    capabilities thrown in. It is all right for very limited tasks but when
    pushed it is quickly found to be profoundly disappointing. Help "What is
    Wordpad?" almost says as much. Don't waste your time on it. Doug

    Hi Elwyn,

    If you like Wordpad but want some more functionality you might be
    interested in taking a look at www. jarte.com. This little outfit,
    Carolina Road Software, put out what is essentially a shell for Wordpad.
    That is, it uses the Wordpad engine, but gives it a nice interface and a
    lot of extra functionality. You can download and use it free, although a
    small one time license fee buys a fre extra features. Many users find
    the free version trotally adequate for what they want. I personally paid
    the fee mainly to support ehri work. At present there is a very stable
    version 3 beta available which I have been using for serious business
    use for about two months now, and it's great. The interface is a little
    different to standard, although you can reconfigure it to look more
    standard if you wish. If you take a look at it I don't think you would
    be disappointed. Oh, and the only connection I have with them is as a
    very satisfied long term user.

    Hope this helps.
