Pagination

Postby LilZebra » Mon Sep 19, 2016 8:59 am

The Pagination extension has been working for me for several years now.

I recently upgraded to LO 5.2 (Linux).

I want to know where I can find Pagination in the menus...It used to be in Insert or Format, but I cannot find it there.

The extension ver. 1.3.10 from 2010 is indeed installed.

I'm writin a 2 page letter to a government minister and I feel it'd be nice if I formatted it correctly before I mail it out to him.

The extension's page is http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/project/Pagination.

This extension may or may not work on LibreOffice.

As a workaround insert a footer on your page style, click cursor in the footer, and /Insert /Fields /Page number and the job is done without any extension. To centre the page number you may need to insert a tab before the pagenumber field.

The menu selection that RoryOF explained should be enough for most uses. If you need a quicker tool to insert page numbers (e.g. if you do this a lot, like every minute or so) you can use Tools - Customize to make a new toolbar.

A custom toolbar can be saved in global Writer settings, or in a template (store in current document, then save that as a template). The attached template has such a toolbar, undocked. If I am reading the description right, this is more or less what the Pagination extension does.

Yes, I already know how to do a basic header and footer.

The issue here is that it is not regular to put a page # on page 1 of a business or personal letter.

How do I omit it from page 1?

You need to use two different page styles. See
