Page Breaks in Google Documents

Google released a new feature for Google Documents yesterday.  Now you will see page breaks when editing your Google Documents.  This will be a big help when working on a document, since now you will be able to tell how many pages you have and where the page breaks are falling.  (I know I will really appreciate this when writing my help guides, since they typically have many pictures and I want to make sure they fit properly on the pages.)  Page breaks will also allow you to see headers and footers on each page.

Hopefully this new feature will pave the way for other page-related improvements that are greatly needed such as customizable page numbers (such as "Page 2 of 5") and columns.

By default the new page break feature will be turned on, although you can switch it on and off by clicking "View" then "Document View" and then choosing either "Paginated" or "Compact".
