How do you insert a page break in a long text document?

One of my layouts is a long text document with merge fields inserted to grab appropriate data form each record.

 

I see no way to actually insert a page break in this document in any of FileMakers controls.  And even when I select "Few" page breaks, I do not see page breaks in Layout mode.

 

What am I missing here?

 

If you can theoretically view page breaks, there must be a method for inserting them where you want them.

 

And why can't I see them in layout mode?  Oh!  I realize why.  I haven't inserted any? 

 

But then you would think that wherever the page breaks fell "naturally" without inserting special page breaks, Layout mode would show that to you so you can decide whether or not you need to use manually inserted page breaks to improve the look of your document.
