My work requires I type many continuous pages of a document. When I must insert a manual page break to alert my superiors of the break, I can't get the break to show on the screen. I've spent hours on HELP "solutions" and tutorials but can't find how to make the page break show. Any ideas?

Not too sure whether your comment above is the problem or what you want to do.
Do you want to insert a page number, then put in non word doc pages, then have the next page in your word document numbered appropriately? If so, you need to insert a section break at the end of the page where you are going to put in pages, then make sure the page layout for the second section does not have "different first page" turned on. Now break any link between section 2 and section 1 in the page layout. So click off the "same as previous" icon in the footer in section 2. Then insert a new page number and set it to "start at" the page number you need it to be.
If you need several sections like this then just repeat the process.
Remember that if you delete a section break, then all the page formatting will revert to that in the previous section. Horrible but its what Word does. Go to the end of any document with sections and add one section break at the end of your text with the same page formatting as you want through the pages before you remove any section breaks in the document to avoid this.
