By default, Word inserts Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, and so on) as page numbers and numbers the pages in a document sequentially beginning with number 1. You can change these default settings with options at the Page Number Format dialog box.
You can number chapters in a document with an option at the Multilevel List button drop-down list and then apply chapter numbering with the Include chapter number option at the Page Number Format dialog box.
You can insert predesigned headers and footers in a document or create your own.
To create a header, click the Header button and then click Edit Header. At the Header pane, insert the desired elements or text. Complete similar steps to create a footer.
Use buttons in the Insert group in the Header & Footer Tools Design tab to insert elements such as the date and time, Quick Parts, pictures, and clip art images into a header or footer.
Navigate to headers and footers with buttons in the Navigation group in the Header & Footer Tools Design tab.
Word inserts a header or footer 0.5 inch from the edge of the page. Reposition a header or footer with buttons in the Position group in the Header & Footer Tools Design tab.
You can create a unique header or footer on the first page; omit a header or footer on the first page; create different headers or footers for odd and even pages; or create different headers or footers for sections in a document. Use options in the Options group in the Header & Footer Tools Design tab to specify the type of header or footer you want to create.
To print sections or specific pages within a section, use the Pages option at the Print dialog box. When specifying sections and pages, use the letter s before the section number and the letter p before the page number.
Word attempts to avoid creating a widow or orphan when inserting soft page breaks. Turn the widow/orphan feature on or off at the Paragraph dialog box with the Line and Page Breaks tab selected. This dialog box also contains options for controlling the location of page breaks in a document keeping a paragraph, a group of paragraphs, or a group of lines together.
