Default Page numbers

I've been using MS word for over 20 years (at least it seems like that), but it seems I've forgotten how to do something related to Page numbering.



I know that I used to be able to insert numbers in Headers/Footers but then do something so that I could move the page number anywhere on the page and delete the headers and footers so that I didn't change the text that was on the page. In effect I was printing in the the margins I suppose. I don't seem to be able to do that now. Any help would be welcome.

Pete

Alt+Shift+P inserts a page number anywhere in document at the insertion point. If you are in a header or footer, it will insert it there.

You can also use Insert > Page Number > Current Position to use the Building Block page numbers.

Hi, thanks for your reply and have tried Alt + Shift + P and "Current Position" but in both cases it only puts the number on one page. I used to be able to do something which put some sort of frame around the Page Number and then move it anywhere I wanted by dragging it.

Hey, this worked for me! Thank you so much. I wanted to have my header centered with the page number on the outside of the page -- and I can!

If you want the page # to appear on all pages, you need to insert the field into the page header or footer. And, if you have a 'different first page' and/or 'different odd and even' page layout, you'll need to do that for the 'first page' and/or 'odd page' headers/footers as well.

Either of the margin accent bars will put a page number in a frame. You can delete everything but the page number if you wish.

If my first page no. 1, and i want to keep next 2 pages out of putting page number and after than again to put the page number 2, ie: total pages is 4 but put page numbers only 1 & 2 (first and fourth), is it possible?

Yes, it's possible. Simply use a 'different first page' layout, combined with a Section break before page 4. Disconnect the second section's header or footer (depending on which you're using for the page #s) from the first section's header or footer, so the page #s don't have to continue, then set the second section's header or footer starting page # to 2. You may or may not want to have a 'different first page' layout for the second section.
