Solution to page breaks not working in TextEdit

I was preparing my final songwriting portfolio in TextEdit rather than the monster that is Microsoft Word. All was going well until I went to print a draft of my portfolio. Each song was separated by page breaks created from Edit > Insert > Page Break but they weren’t showing in the pdf I had created.

After some searching I found that I need to set Format > Wrap to Page. This will make the TextEdit window more like a traditional word processor look.
