Page Numbering


Taela Fox

I would like to start my page numbering on page 9. And Header on Page 10.

I do not want pages 1-8 to be numbered. Nor do I want the header to be
shown in pages 1-9.

How do I accomplish this?

Note the importance of unlinking headers/footers when you want to leave some
of them blank (as opposed to just restarting the numbering or changing the
number format. Also note that "Different first page" will allow you to start
the numbering on page 9 but not display the number till page 10.
