Hi :)
Can anyone here help Susanne?

If you scroll down to Peter's/Peewee's answer you might be able to see
where he was going with it and might be able to help clarify what he
meant.  It's all a bit beyond me :((

Regards from
Tom :)

Hi Tom

Thanks for your reply and I am sorry to bother you again.

<snip />

I am just building a large list and would like it to contain page numbers
for my large document.

I own a Mac with no word program on it. Does your advice still apply for
me? Sorry, I am a newbie at these type of things and I was just hoping for
a quick answer and hopefully a easy solution.

I believe in your volunteer project and thanks why I made a paypal
donation. Its a great project.

Keep up the fine work! Thanks again for your kind help.

Hi  Susan! :)
Questions like this are best sent to the User Support mailing list;

The best bet is to keep your original in ODF format (.odt in this case)
and then just export into the older MS format to share with other people.
Even better is if you keep it in ODF and give people a link to our
downloads page but people don't always have the luxury of being able to
install programs onto their own machine.  The older MS formats, such as
.Doc rather than .DocX seem to have settled down and stopped changing
around so much.

Welcome in! :)
Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Hello Susan

When you say paginate do you mean page numbering. This easily achieved as

1. Create a new Writer document.
2. Go to Insert > Footer or Insert > Header on the main menu bar and
select Default Style, or the style you want to use if you have created a
footer or header style.
3. Go to Insert > Fields on the main menu bar and select Page Number and,
if you need a page count, Insert > Fields > Page Count.
4. Go to Format > Page on the main menu bar to open the Page Style dialog
and click on the Page tab.
5. In the Layout settings section select the page layout you want to use
and click Apply or OK.

Pagination is a term normally used for for laying pout the order of pages
document for printing by professional printers. For example, a newspaper is
paginated so that when the sheets of newsprint are folded to make the
newspaper the pages are in the correct order. When you print a document on
your own printer there is no need to worry about pagination.

However, if you want to print a brochure in Writer, go to File > Print to
open the Print dialog. In the options for LibreOffice, click on More and
select Brochure. This will tell your printer to paginate the document so
that when you fold the brochure document, the pages will be in the right
order, just like a newspaper.

I am one of the technical writers on the LO team, but have never looked
at the Writer Guide, so I maybe slightly wrong in what I have suggested.
However, I do use Writer to produce the guides for Impress and Draw.

With regards

Dear LibreOffice Staff,

Thank you for making this program Free to use. It's been a real
lifesaver for me. I even donated a little with my Paypal account.

 I have one question on one thing that I am having trouble with. I have
created a list of a 50 page document that will soon to be a hundred pages
in length. My problem is that I cannot get the pagination to work correctly
as per the manual instructions no matter what I have tried it just will not
paginate. If I start the pagination on say page three the rest of my
document says page 3! I need to find a way to properly paginate in the
correct sequential order of page1,2,3, etc. Is there any other way or an
easier way to achieve this?

Other than this one problem, I love using your writing program and I
did not have to run and buy an expensive software bundle that I could not
afford. Keep up the excellent work! You have a loyal user for life. I will
tell everyone about your superb software products. Thank you!!!

With My Grateful Thanks From Canada,
Susan Engel
