I'm writing a paper with Pages, and I'm having some trouble with the page numbers. I have to start with a title page, then the actually body/text of my paper. I need the page numbers to start with "1" but on page 2, not the title page. I've figured out how to skip over the title page and begin the page counting where my body/text begins, but it says page 2. I need it to say it's page 1! Help!

Insert a Section Break before where you want to start and uncheck "Use previous headers & footers." It does what it says. Peter

That's what I ended up doing, but it still doesnt allow me to begin the numbering at "1" on page 2. I had the same problem with Microsoft Word but I did end up figuring that one out. I think the solution would be to change the number "1" to "0" in the picture you posted above (where it says "Start at:"). However, it's not letting me do that. Maybe it can't be done with Pages?

Peter, thank you, it worked! I was using page break, I didn't realize there was a difference between the two. Thank you so much! Matt
