I want page numbers at the bottom of each page numbered in the correct order for each of the flowed in text boxes. I briefly played with the bookfold layout but on the short test that I did I could not make it do that.

I have come into using Word for a booklet via Serif PagePlus which is a DTP programme that does exactly what I want but with the drawback that not everyone can read its extension. Exporting PagePlus files to pdf does not easily allow double sided printing.

Maybe I will have to look at Publisher, which I have but used very little, but that is yet another programme to learn and at 81 years old not easy to do.

Thank you for your interest.
