can't insert chapter break
I uploaded a large file in Sigil ( a large novel, more than 500 pages in a paper book).
The file was orgnally a word doc converted in html.
All the paragraphs are a mess and i am trying to clean it up.
When I try to insert the chapter break, a new section opens but the page is blank and the text is still in the previous page.
What am I doing wrong?

I'd recommend the following:
- Switch to Code View
- Globally replace all initial chapter header tags (h1,h2,h3...) with <hr class="sigilChapterBreak" /> and the header tag. E.g.:
Replace: <hr class="sigilChapterBreak" /><h3>
- Then press F6 (=Split at Chapter Markers)

Nobody said it, but in book view, the cursor must be set at the end of the preceding chapter, NOT at the start of the chapter where you want the break, when you do chapter break. Seems like it ought to be the same but it is not.

Many of Sigils features only work correctly when the cursor (insert caret) is done a certain way.
Split: Must be at End of Line
Heading, center, left, right, justify: someplace ON the line
Other features only work for Selected (highlighted) text:
Bold, Underline, Italic, block indent, block un-indent.
