Page Numbering

Pages can do a wide variety of page number styles, changing the type and restarting the numbering from the beginning of any Section or start from any number.

You can break up a Book up into separate documents and use the page numbering to continue on from the previous chapters, to assemble later on completion in a pdf, or in another Pages document to hold it all.

In a Word Processing* mode template either ready made or blank to create your own.

Inspector > Document > Document > Document margins > check Header/Footer/or both

Click in either the Header or the Footer, whichever one you want the page numbers:

Menu > Insert > Automatic Page Numbers > chose the numbering style

You can preface the numbering with whatever text you want and select the numbering field and style it as you like.

To start and change the numbering and its type, click in the section you wish to change and use:

Menu > Insert > Section Break

Inspector > Layout > Section > uncheck Continue from previous section > Start at:

In a Layout** mode template either ready made or blank to create your own.

Inspector > Document > Document > Document margins > check Header/Footer/or both

Click in whichever one you want the page numbers:

To handle the styles, starting point etc it is much like with Word Processing mode except, because every page is a section, you can click in any page to change the styles, positions text etc. Changes wil start or stop at any page that you choose to change the settings.

Page x of y

To lead the page number with specific text:

1. Type in the Header or Footer eg Page 3 of 8 or Chapter One: My life Begins 3 of 8

2. Insert the cursor where you want the present page number: Menu > Insert > Page Number

3. Insert the cursor where you want the total page number: Menu > Insert > Page Count

Changing an existing page numbering style

Locate a page number in the text of the section you want to change:

Double click on it

or

[i]select the number > right mouse click on it[i]

and choose from the Contextual Menu Options

Auto Page Numbering and Page Numbering

These are much the same, except Auto Page Numbering is only available for Headers and Footers and allows you much greater choices over placement and alignment and mirroring for facing pages.

* Word processing mode documents have a default text layer between the document margins which automatically flow from page to page adding pages automatically as text overflows previous pages. The flow can be broken into distinct parts by inserting Section Breaks.

** Layout mode documents have no default text layer. They consist solely of any objects that you add to the page. Text is added into floating Text Boxes or into Headers or Footers. Each page acts like a Section on its own.

Page Numbering changing from Roman to Arabic

This is a simple step by step procedure of telling pages what you want in each section, and where to change from one to the other.

click in the second section > Inspector > Layout > Section > Page Numbers > Start at: 1 > uncheck Use previous headers and footers

You could also have done this directly in:

Menu > Insert > Auto Page Numbers

where you can choose

Show in: Document/Current Section

Position: Footer/Header

Alignment: Left/Centre/Right/Inside/Outside

Format: 1,2,3/a.b,c/A,B,C/i,ii,iii/I,II,III

If you already have inserted the Page numbers

Select the numbers in the 1st and 2nd section in turn, after unchecking Use previous headers and footers to separate the 2.

In the first section right click on the page number and choose a roman style number.

In the second section right click on the page number and choose an arabic style number.

There is a well ordered logic to Pages '09. both the menus and Inspectors go from the Overall document down to the Details from left to right, and the Menu/Inspector titles do mean what they say.
