Insert Page Numbers 4. Section break types . While section breaks do occur naturally (changing the margins or orientation of a single page in a document causes a natural section break), most are inserted by the user. Section breaks come in four varieties: · Next page. This inserts not only a section break, but a page break as well. Text following the break is forced onto the next page of the document. · Continuous. No page break is inserted, and the section break occurs at the cursor. This type of break can be inserted anywhere on the page. · Even page. If a document will be bound or printed on both sides of the paper, you may want to treat odd and even pages differently--setting up different headers and footers, for example. An Even page break causes the text following it to start at the top of the next even page. If the break is inserted on an even page, a new blank odd page is added (through a forced page break) to accomplish the task. · Odd page. The opposite of an Even page section break, this break forces text following the break onto the next odd-numbered page. If the break is inserted on an odd page, a new even-numbered page will be added (and left blank) be- tween the section break and the next odd page. If the File Page Setup Layout "Different odd and even" option is enabled, odd and even section breaks are automatically inserted throughout the document. Headers and Footers in Section Breaks By default, header and footer content remains consistent throughout the sections in a document. If a different header or footer is needed for a particular section, go to the Header and Footer layer (double-click the header or footer text or choose View Header and Footer) and click the Same as Previous but- ton to break the connection between sections. Insert Page Numbers The Page Numbers command (Figure 7-2) makes adding page numbers to a document easy. The default settings for the alignment and position of the page numbers work for most documents, requiring very little adjustment. Page numbers are added to the header or footer layer. The choice for the alignment depends largely on the intended print method: · If printing will be only on one side of the paper, place the page numbers on the right or in the center. · For printing on both sides of the paper, use inside or outside placement or use File Page Setup to set up different odd and even settings for the document's pages. By default, the "Show number on first page" option is enabled. Since no number is re- quired on the first page of most documents, you'll probably want to turn this option off.
