Video instructions and help with filling out and completing how to insert different page numbers in word 2016


How do I make a different header for each page on Word 2016?
You need to take advantage of Word powerful sections capabilities. By default every Word document has at least one section with an empty page header and footer. If you create a page header (and footer) it will appear on every page. That may be fine for a memo but it is pretty lame for a report. Tip make life easier for yourself by right-clicking the status bar at the bottom of the screen and checking the Formatted page number and Section options to show these for the current selection always displayed in your status bar. italic To get the headers you want Type in the content of your cover page and instead of pressing Ctrl-Enter or using Insert | Page Break italic to get a page break to start your outline use the Layout ribbon Page Setup | Breaks pull-down to choose Next Page (from the Section Break list). Type in your outline copy and then add another Next Page section break before starting to your main content. (Note If you have your copy already d in you can just select and delete the page breaks and then use the above to insert the section breaks.) italic Youll now have 3 sections in your document. Now click within the start of your outline content. You can either double-click in the header area or use the Insert ribbon Header & Footer | Header to create the heading you want. However before you anything first italic click the Link to Previous button in the Navigation part of the Header and Footer Tools ribbon to disconnect the header from the previous one (i.e. the cover page in your case). If you don do this the heading you create for your outline will be used for the previous section (your cover page). The Same as Previous label will disappear to indicate that this heading will start a new series. Type in what you need McCabe3 and use Page Number Current Position for including the page number. However the page number being displayed in your new heading will be 2. As well the status bar will report that your selection is on PAGE 2 of Section2 and Page 2 of x (where x is the total number of pages in your document) but you want it to be page i. To adjust this choose Format Page Number from the Insert ribbon Header & Footer | Page Number pull-down. In the top part change the number format to i ii iii and in the bottom part of this dialog change the page numbering to start at i. When you click OK youll see that the status bar will now show that you are on PAGE i of Section 2 and Page 2 of x and your header will now show the page number as i. Now move the cursor to the beginning of your main article. Your header will now show an Arabic number (53) and the status bar will show PAGE 3 (or greater) and Section 3. To reset the page number to 1 for this section use the Page Number Format dialog (as above from Insert | Header & Footer | Page Number pull-down) to set the Page numbering to Start at 1. The page numbering format is part of the section definition so if you later add another section break say to start a 2nd chapter you will need to use the Page Number Format dialog again to reset the numbering to Continue from previous section. If you don the new section will also begin as page 1. Be aware that the above covers just the tip of the iceberg when ites to managing pagination in a Word document. You can have different first page headers & footers different headers & footers for odd and even pages; automatically include chapter titles in headers and footers; and much more.

How do I insert the same number to all line numbers on Word 2016?
I get the question I think but why would you want to? The whole purpose of line numbering is to enable the reader to rapidly hone in on an exact place in the document. Numbering them all the same has to be the numbering equivalent of highlighting everything on a page. Word allows you to increment numbers by any count from 131 but that it. If you wanted to override this then you could use boxes. That would be extremely tedious and quickly border on unmanageable though.
