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

Applying with functions

<div class="break-before:$(value)">...</div>

Master supports native CSS variables and functions, just add var(--key) or use shorthand$(key) for variables.

You can also use calc(expression), env(expression) and other CSS functions if the property supports it.

To learn more, see the Functions documentation.
