How to Start Numbering Your Manuscript at a Specific Point in Word

1) On the page before the one you want to number insert a break ( “next page” break).

2) Then go to Headers and Footers and turn off the icon “link to previous”.

3) Head to Page Set Up and select “different odd and even” and “new page”.

4) Now you can go to  “Insert” and then “Page Numbers”.  The numbering should start in the right place .  Numbers will appear on all the odd pages. Then you can do the same with the next page.

This has taken me ages to work out. I hope these instructions make life easier for you.

With best wishes
