How do I manage page breaks on my PDF?

Once you have written your CV and exported it as a PDF, you may find that the page is breaking in an unappealing spot, cutting a section in half:

To fix this, you can use VisualCV's page break tool to move that section to the next page. To use the page break tool:

1. Open the Page layout menu. This will open some editing options at the top of the editor.

2. In the page layout menu, click Adjust Page Breaks.

Add page break buttons will appear throughout the resume.

3. Click Add page break at the section that you want to shift to the next page. This will create a page break in that location. The page break will be visible in the PDF version of your resume.

4. When you have added the necessary page breaks, click Finish Adjusting. Export your resume to PDF to see the changes.


Tip: If you want greater customization of page breaks - page breaks in the middle of a section, for example - use new lines instead of the page break tool. Add empty space where you want a page to break, and the content below will be pushed down the page.

Tip: Create two copies of your resume - one for PDF export, and one for viewing online. This is so your adjustments to the page breaks don't affect the online view.
