    Breaking Lists


    Hello, I am a QC person here at CBNP. There seems to be some dissenting opinions among people over lists. I know you have answered similar questions before and I thank you in advance for your patience.


    1. Is it preferable to keep a list (simple or nested) all on one page if it will fit?


    1. If a nested list breaks over a page and a main entry in cell 1 lands on line 25 should it be brought to the next page with its sub-entries? See example 1.


    1. May a nested list item be broken as shown in example 2?


    1. Is it okay to break a simple list (and item) the way it is done in example 3?


    1. May the first item in a list break over a page as shown in example 4?
