I have a 20 page report that needs the numbers to be in the header.  I can hide the header on the cover sheet, but Inspector won't let me set "begin numbering" with zero.  I tried to insert a section break and a page break, but don't know what I am doing and not only does it not seem to help, it totally messed up all my graphics by moving them into text.  I have spent hours trying to figure this out!


I also need to submit it in Word, but since I can't see it unless I open in Pages, I don't know what it looks like before I sumbit it.  Last year when I did this, I got docked points because the layout was messed up.  I have to sumbit this by midnight and have been working on it since yesterday.


Please help meeeeeeeee! : )

    Click at the end of the text on the 1st page > Menu > Insert > Section Break


    Click in the text of the 2nd page > Inspector > Layout > Section > Page Numbers > Start at: 1 > Configuration > uncheck Use previous headers and footers


    Click in the Header/Footer of the 2nd page > Menu > Insert > Page Number


    If there is anything in the first (title page) header or footer, just delete it.


    Cut and paste your graphics Inline into the text, preferably in their own paragraph, and they will move with the text.


    If you need tighter integration with Ms Word or simply want to check your exported docs, DL and install LibreOffice [free].

    Inline images are just like a character in the text, so cut and paste them where they can fit, usually on a line of their own (which means a return before and after) or if they are small enough, side by side on the same line.


    Experiment to see what happens in a clean document, pasting them in place one by one.
