sequential numbering


A

Alexander Baron

I have a book ready for publication in WORD format; the publisher wants
me to put the entire text in one file. I've managed this with the actual
body, pages 1-328 but the Acknowledgments and Introduction are number
i,ii,iii etc. There is also the verso and cover which are not paginated.

I can't suss how to do this. What I want is to start the file with pages

i,ii,iii,iv,v,vi then go to 1,2,3...328 and finally have a few
unnumbered pages. Can anyone ell me how to do this? Not having much luck
with the on-line help.

Thanks

Hi, Alexander,

At each point where you want the page number to change either style (roman
vs arabic) or sequence, you need to insert a section break of the Next Page,
Odd Page, or Even Page variety.

Now start with the cursor in Section 1. Open the Header area. Click the
Format Page Number button on the Header/Footer toolbar. There you can select
the style for that section in the dropdown at the top, and set the starting
page number for the section at the bottom. (Even if you choose a roman
numeral or alphabetic letter style, the starting page number can be entered
as a digit and will be automatically converted.)

Click OK in the dialog; then use the Show Next button on the toolbar to go
to the next section, and repeat the Format Page Number bit. Each section can
be styled and numbered independently of the others.

Note that you can restart page numbering without unlinking the
headers/footers, but if you are changing the format of the number (roman to
arabic), you have to press the Same as Previous button (to turn it off) in
order to unlink that section from the previous one.

Additionally, make sure you turn off Same As Previous
each time it appears. I also find it easier to start at
the bottom of my document and work back.
