I Want Page Numbering to Start on Page Seven

Dennis Faas's picture

A reader recently wrote to me with this query:

" I want to start my number (1) at page seven, leaving the first six pages with no numbers. How do I do this? "

My Response:

You must employ section breaks to accomplish this.

  • Position your cursor at the end of page six and click on Insert | Break | Next Page.
  • Now, at the beginning of the next page (page seven), click on Insert | Page Numbers.
  • Format your page numbers to your liking and click on OK.

You should now only have a page number starting on page seven.

I hope this has been helpful to you.
