Crystal Reports : Force a New Page After a Group Prints

It is often handy to "split" a printed report into seperae groups of pages.
Example : a report lists history analysis, grouped by Userid. One Userid ends and another begins right on the same page, which can make it confusing to read.
A solution would be to force the report to insert a page break after every Userid is printed.
To do this:
1. Right-click on the Group Footer of the Group in question.
2. Select "Format Section"
3. Check the "New Page After" checkbox.
4. Okay your way back out.

Now every time the Group Footer is printed, Crystal will insert a page break, printing the next Userid on a new page.

When I try this I get a blank page 1 and the results are returned on page 2 onwards.
