[Solved] Writer page numbering

Postby johnblakemore » Tue Jan 22, 2019 2:52 pm

An existing 3 page document is now showing Page 2 of 4 (Page 0) in the bottom left hand corner of the document.
How do I get back to Page 1, page 2 etc

See if that helps: [Tutorial] Page numbering.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the *EDIT button if your issue has been fixed.

Is it an automatically inserted blank left or right page?

Please upload a small file showing the problem so that it can be analysed. Use the Upload attachment tab below where you type (128 kB max); or use a file share site, Dropbox or Google Drive for a larger file.

Hi
There are no blank pages in the document.
The ribbon at the bottom of the document reads;
Page 2 of 4 (Page 0) / 1131 words, 9584 characters/ Default style/English UK etc
Does this help?

You will find much useful information, including pagination, in the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials, the up to date Writer guide and the Writer Manual. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

Press F1 to access the Help screen and search for your problem

The chapter headings in the manual are:

1 - Introducing Writer
2 - Setting up Writer
3 - Working with Text
4 - Formatting Pages
5 - Printing, Exporting, Faxing and E-Mailing
6 - Introduction to Styles
7 - Working with Styles
8 - Working with Graphics
9 - Working with Tables
10 - Working with Templates
11 - Using Mail Merge
12 - Tables of Contents, Indexes and Bibliographies
13 - Working with Master Documents
14 - Working with Fields
15 - Using Forms in Writer
16 - Customizing Writer – Keyboard shortcuts.

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.

Showing that a problem has been solved helps others searching so, if your problem is now solved, please view your first post in this thread and click the Edit button (top right in the post) and add [Solved] in front of the subject.
