Ive got a strange problem which i haven't encountered before. Im in writer and have cut and pasted some text from one doc to another. The problem is that a page break has appeared between two of the pasted lines which wasn't in the original document and which i cant remove by positioning the cursor and hitting delete.

If you cannot remove it using the normal means, surely that means that what you have is not, in fact, a page break?

There is plenty of space on the page in the target doc for the pasted text. The problem appears to be in the target document as if i undo the paste and just type some text and hit enter, i get a page break before the new line (and no, the ctrl key hasnt got jammed down ). Any ideas what might cause this?

There are other reasons for text to behave like this - for example, the widow and orphan control in the paragraph formatting or in the paragraph style. You could check those.

Remember that pasting material often brings by default formatting characteristics that were in the original document. If you don't want these in the target document, the easy way is to use Edit | Paste Special... (or Ctrl+Shift+V) instead of ordinary Paste, selecting "Unformatted text" in the Paste Special dialogue.

I trust this helps.
