Lesson 2. Setting Up Your Document > Adding sections to change page numbering

Adding sections to change page numbering

The magazine you're working on requires introductory material that should be numbered with lowercase roman numerals (i, ii, iii, and so on). You can change the page number by adding a section. You'll start a new section on page 2 to create roman-numeral page numbering, and then you'll start another section on page 6 to revert to arabic numerals and restart numbering.

1.
In the Pages palette, click the page 2 icon to select it within the palette.

Notice that because the B-Footer master is assigned to page 2, the page includes the guides and footer information, but it does not include any of the placeholder frames that you added to the C-Placeholder master.

2.
On the Pages palette menu, choose Numbering & Section Options. Then, in the New Section dialog box, make sure that Start Section and Automatic Page Numbering are selected, or select them now.

3.
For Style, choose i, ii, iii, iv (lowercase) from the pop-up menu. Then click OK and notice the page icons in the Pages palette. Starting with page 2, the page numbering is now set to appear in roman numerals in the footers of the pages.

The Pages palette and the page numbers on page ii. The triangle above page ii in the Pages palette indicates the start of a section.

Now you'll specify arabic numbers for the pages from 6 through the rest of the document.

4.
Click page 6 (vi) in the Pages palette to select it.

5.
On the Pages palette menu, choose Numbering & Section Options.

6.
In the New Section dialog box, make sure that the Start Section is selected or select it now.

7.
Select Start Page Numbering At, press Tab and type 2 to start the section numbering with page 2.

8.
For Style, select 1, 2, 3, 4 on the pop-up menu, and then click OK. Save your file.

Now your pages are properly renumbered. Notice that a black triangle appears above pages 1, ii, and 2 in the Pages palette. These triangles indicate the start of a new section.
