How do you force a page break?

For example, I would like each of the chapters of a short book to start at the top of a new page. Using Quark 9.3 on iMac OSX 10.7.4
Thanks for any tips!

Hi,
Make each chapter a separate Article to start each chapter from a new page.

I am returning to Quark after a 10 year layoff (retired). Quark is faster and smarter, wish I was!

I remember being able to type in a chapter name, then apply to it a paragraph style that caused a page break and font, text, changes etc.
It would then renumber pages, etc as required.

My wife and I are preparing a book. I will be moving chapters around, adding some to the the end, and inserting new ones as the book progresses.

Question
I have found a special character that causes a column break \c, but need one that causes a page break. There used to be one? I think.

The layout that we want has a page with two columns. The new chapter page I want will, in addition, have a text box at the top covering the joint width of colums and gap, which will hold the chapter title. There will be many photos, images, footnotes, etc.

Yes I will have to create these boxes for each chapter, but plan to do this close to sending the result to the printers. Can you help please
