So I've been getting a lot of questions recently about how to better control page numbering

in a Pages' document.

Sometimes you want to skip pages or have a cover page.

So let's take a look at how to get exactly the page numbers that you want.

Pages has, of course, two modes.

Word Processing and Page Layout.

Let's start by looking at Word Processing.

I'm going to create a blank document and I'm going to paste in some text here to fill out

the document.

So as you can see I've got a bunch of pages here.

Let's go back to the top and add page numbering.

You can do it in either the Header or the Footer for the page.

Let's do it in the Header right in the center.

I'll click here and it's going to give me Insert Page Number, I can click there, and

choose one of these options.
