The break-inside CSS property sets how page, column, or region breaks should behave inside a generated box. If there is no generated box, the property is ignored.

/* Keyword values */
break-inside: auto;
break-inside: avoid;
break-inside: avoid-page;
break-inside: avoid-column;
break-inside: avoid-region;

/* Global values */
break-inside: inherit;
break-inside: initial;
break-inside: unset;

Each possible break point (in other words, each element boundary) is affected by three properties: the break-after value of the previous element, the break-before value of the next element, and the break-inside value of the containing element.

To determine if a break must be done, the following rules are applied:

  1. If any of the three concerned values is a forced break value (always, left, right, page, column, or region), it has precedence. If more than one of them are such a break, the value of the element that appears the latest in the flow is used. Thus, the break-before value has precedence over the break-after value, which in turn has precedence over the break-inside value.
  2. If any of the three concerned values is an avoid break value (avoid, avoid-page, avoid-region, or avoid-column), no such break will be applied at that point.

Once forced breaks have been applied, soft breaks may be added if needed, but not on element boundaries that resolve in a corresponding avoid value.

Syntax

The break-inside property is specified as one of the keyword values from the list below.

Values

auto
Allows, but does not force, any break (page, column, or region) to be be inserted within the principle box.
avoid
Avoids any break (page, column, or region) from being inserted within the principal box.
avoid-page
Avoids any page break within the principle box.
avoid-column
Avoids any column break within the principle box.
avoid-region
Avoids any region break within the principle box.

Formal syntax

auto | avoid | avoid-page | avoid-column | avoid-region

Page break aliases

For compatibility reasons, the legacy page-break-inside property should be treated by browsers as an alias of break-inside. This ensures that sites using page-break-inside continue to work as designed. A subset of values should be aliased as follows:

page-break-inside break-inside
auto auto
avoid avoid

Notes on compatibility

Prior to Firefox 65, the older property of page-break-inside will work in Firefox to prevent breaks in columns, as well as pages. Add both properties for backwards compatibility.

For older WebKit-based browsers, the prefixed property -webkit-column-break-inside can be used to control column breaks.
