OpenOffice – How to insert page numbers

Inserting pages number can be difficult if you don’t understand how your text processing software works.


1. Press F11 (Styles and Formatting).

2. Select style “First Page” for your first page (identify it as such to prevent a page number to be shown).

3. Leave other pages alone, they should already be set to default.

4. Now, let’s insert a header on all pages to display page numbers. Go to Insert -> Header (or footer) > Default (only pages with styling “Default” will have it).

5. Finally, place your cursor in the inserted header and Insert -> Page numbers.

Choose an alignment (left, center or right) and you’re done!
