Here am I using Word for 18 years and I never spotted that intuitive aspect to the interface. Works on Word 2011 for Mac as well, thanks very much! Saved me a couple hours.

Hello everyone, Working closely with Word for almost a year as an editor, I've gotten used to the fact that it likes to pull pranks on you. And sometimes you have to conduct some crazy manipulations to do some simple things. I wonder if deleting a page after a Section Break Next Page is an example of that. I know that the page that follows is the result of the type of the Section Break, which in this case is 'Next Page', so Word automatically adds a new page after it. I have to delete the Section Break Next Page first, but it controls to many formatting elements (the page has a different header and footer and page orientation), so deleting it results in losing all that formatting. Is it possible to delete the page after Section Break Next Page painlessly?

I attached an example file just in case. (I use Word 2007) Thank you very much for your help. Thanks for your reply, Ulodesk. But it only solves half of the problem. As I mentioned (and as you can see in my example file attached), the page that needs to be deleted has a different header and footer. When you delete Section Break Next Page on the previous page, it 'inherits' the footer and header of the deleted page. So before deleting the page I do not need, I have to change its orientation, then make sure my headers and footers are the same on both pages, and what if I also have a multiple column layout on the previous page, I have to set up the same layout on the to-be-deleted page as well.
