Inserting page numbers

Postby Novelist13 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 7:25 pm

How can I automatically have page numbers inserted in my header? My document starts out ok but then changes to incorrect numbers. I think this happened because I copied and pasted other copy into the new document and it kept the old page numbers. How can I correct this?

Check the Text Flow tab of the style of the first paragraph on the page where the numbers change and make sure the setting in the page number box on that style page is set to 0.
