OpenOffice Inserting Page Breaks

I've been using OpenOffice more than usual lately (and still greatly prefer emacs/LaTeX for speed and accuracy). One annoyance has been inserting page breaks: Insert|Manual Break|Page Break. Very clumsy and slow. There's no hint regarding an equivalent shortcut adjacent to the menu item, so I tried ^L--it is the standard ASCII page break character--but no joy. Googling led to http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=35045, where Bhikkhu Pesala suggests ^enter (or control enter for newbs). Thanks Bhikku.
