I rememeber I read somewhere here that whether or not \longtable will break the page at the end of a certain line depends on how you end that line. In my memory it won't break at \\ and not at \tabularnewline or vice versa, but I tried it and both seem false.

Is there some special 'end of line' symbol that we can use that prevents \longtable to (also) break the page at that point?

    \\ and \pagebreak allow page break. \\*and \nopagebreak prevent pagebreak. \tabularnewline is synonym to \\ Nov 10, 2022 at 16:36

\\ and \tabularnewline are the same thing. As elsewhere in LaTeX the * form prevents page breaks so \\* or \tabularnewline*
