why did MS make it so difficult w/page numbers?

Discussion in 'Microsoft Word Document Management' started by mvillafana2002, Oct 30, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    In older versions of MS Office, when I click on the page number tab, there
    was a VERY CLEAR option which stated "hide page number on page 1" (or
    something along that line).

    I think I got it to work, but nevertheless I think the point is quite valid--

    Did you try searching for "page number" in the Help file? The third hit is
    what you want.

  3. Previous versions have the Insert | Page Numbers dialog, which does have a
    check box for "Show number on first page." It also has Inside and Outside
    options, as well as Right, Left, and Center. All of this is accomplished by
    putting the page number in a frame and formatting the frame. More recent
    versions of Word have attempted to move away from frames and also,
    incidentally, introduce users to more stable ways of inserting page numbers
    (directly in the header or footer), but this does require users to learn how
    to use "Different first page" and "Different odd and even."
