How to display page breaks in Word 2007

Is there a way to display page breaks (the horizontal dotted line) in Word 2007 within the Web Layout and Draft views? I am aware of the "Show all formatting marks" options, which isn't what I want as I don't want to see all the other formatting marks.

"I have just looked for you for the past couple of minutes and been experimenting.

It looks like whilst you have the option to manually show various characters, a line break comes under ""Show all formatting marks"" which unfortunately for you means that you also see every other mark.

Sorry - I do not think this is possible."

"In Word, go to ""Options"" -> ""Advanced"" -> At the bottom drop down ""compatibility options"" and select ""all new documents"" -> Expand layout options -> Check ""Split apart page break and paragraph mark""

This will show page breaks in all new documents you create. You can also do the above individually for older documents you're working on."
