manually assigning chapters

i've imported a pdf file into stanza which turned in to a long text with not distinction between the different chapters. i'd like to be able to manually organize it somehow and break it in to chapters. is there a way to insert some sort of "chapter break" in the text?

Copy and paste the text of

Copy and paste the text of your PDF into a text file, and insert chapter breaks at regular intervals or wherever there are unmarked chapter breaks in the text, like this:

Chapter 1
blah blah blah blah...

Chapter 2
blah blah blah blah...

Make sure not to leave out any numbers, and make sure none of the chapters is much shorter or longer than the others. Then save that text file as plain text UTF-8. Then open that text file in Stanza Desktop. Let me know how that works.
