# Installation

The Page break feature is enabled by default in the superbuild only.

To add this feature to your rich-text editor, install the @ckeditor/ckeditor5-page-break package:

npm install --save @ckeditor/ckeditor5-page-break

And add it to your plugin list configuration:

import { PageBreak } from '@ckeditor/ckeditor5-page-break';

    .create( document.querySelector( '#editor' ), {
        plugins: [ PageBreak, /* ... */ ],
        toolbar: [ 'pageBreak', /* ... */ ],
    } )
    .then( /* ... */ )
    .catch( /* ... */ );

Here are some useful CKEditor 5 features that you can use together with the page break plugin for an all-around paged editing experience:

  • The pagination feature allows you to see where page breaks would be after the document is exported to PDF or to Word.
  • The export to Word feature will allow you to generate editable, paged .docx files out of your editor-created content.
  • The export to PDF feature will allow you to generate portable, paged PDF files out of your editor-created content.

# Common API

The PageBreak plugin registers:

  • the UI button component ('pageBreak'),
  • the 'pageBreak' command implemented by PageBreakCommand.

The command can be executed using the editor.execute() method:

// Inserts a page break into the selected content.
editor.execute( 'pageBreak' );

We recommend using the official CKEditor 5 inspector for development and debugging. It will give you tons of useful information about the state of the editor such as internal data structures, selection, commands, and many more.
