When you check Page Breaks on the View menu, gray lines appear on your drawing. These gray lines indicate overlap: content that falls within them prints twice, once on each of two adjoining printed pages. The gray lines also show you approximately where pages will break when you print.

To see how the flowchart will be printed, look at the Print Preview, which is on the File menu. As the following figure shown, some shapes of the flowchart extends a page break. It will be printed on four pieces of letter-sized paper.
