[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] showBreaksInFrames (Display Page/Column Breaks Present in Frames)

This element specifies whether applications should honor the presence of page and/or column breaks which are present within the contents of paragraphs which have been defined as frames using the framePr element (Part 1, §

Typically, breaks within frames shall be ignored and shall have no effect on the display of the paragraph in which they are contained. This element, when present with a val attribute value of true (or equivalent), specifies that rather than completely ignoring these breaks, applications should display the break and move the remaining frame content, and all subsequent text, to the next page and/or column, as needed.

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with a paragraph contained within a text frame:


The default presentation would display the page break inline in the frame (breaking the frame into two) but would not actually break the page:


However, if this compatibility setting is turned on:

<w:showBreaksInFrames />

Then the page breaks is used even though they are present in the frame, breaking the page and resulting in the following output:


end example]
