Add a page break before paragraphs in Google Docs in mobile

Quick launch summary 

Last year, we announced the ability to add page breaks before paragraphs on web. Now, this function is available on mobile. 

You can mark a paragraph to always begin on a new page with the new “Add page break before” option in Google Docs. This is particularly useful if you want certain paragraph styles to always create a new page such as titles, subtitles, or headings.

This also means that you can import and export Microsoft Word and other third-party documents that have “Page break before” applied to paragraphs and Docs will retain that formatting.
