When writing a document in SW...

If the document is created in landscape mode, I think paragraph breaks 
could be done much like it is with horizontal writing ... just insert a 
little extra space horizontally.  Another possibility we could borrow 
from English writing is the use of indentation to represent paragraph 

Another thought that occurred to me is using something like a short 
thin line drawn vertically by itself to the left upper corner of the 
beginning of the paragraph. That could visually indicate a start of 
paragraph. If it is always written flush with the top margin, that 
could be sufficient to mark the paragraph. Maybe Valerie has something 

Just my brainstorms.
