There is a beautiful manual created for Libre Office and I have review the one on-line for version 6.2, and the hard copy for version 6.4. After attempting to put in page number I have never seen anything as frustrating as to the numerous attempts I have made. I can put up with the jumping around that it does, moving words, inserting new pages, and the renumbering  of pages (ie repeating the same page number on two consecutive pages.) But cannot there just be a simple method to get a consecutive page number on each page. I am not changing styles, chapter names, or anything complicated. But it just doesn't seem to work for me. I love open source. I am developing a manual for the use of open source resources to build a project utilizing numerous open source programs. But this is getting out of hand. I know it can be accomplished since I see a very creative job of it in the hard copy. I chose to believe that the manual was created with Libre Office.

I am using Libre Office, Version:
Build ID: 1:6.4.6-0ubuntu0.20.04.1
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3;
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. It is difficult to push open source software when it refuses to perform as the author describe. I would tell you that it is driving me insane, but it is such a short trip, I prefer to walk.
