Today I've had 2 frustrations with LO Writer (6.0.4 & 6.2a). To keep this shorter and easier to follow, I'm posting two topics

This email has one of those frustrations.

I have a legal document that was originally a MS Word doc. I don't want to rebuild the complete document to fix page numbering and outline/paragraph numbering style. I would appreciate any pointers on how to fix the following 2 issues.

I started using LO earlier this year and have found page numbers a challenge.

I have a legal document that was usually added into or appended to a proposal document that was printed to a pdf.

So I have changed the page number in the legal document to start with the page following the last page of the proposal. ie. proposal has five pages so the legal document would start on page 6.

I've been to a dozen websites and seen a few youtube videos but still can't get the page number to change from "4". I'd like it to be "1" for the present document.

What I've tried. a) Delete the footer; b) delete the footer, then reset the default footer; c) in the page style change the type flow option to set the page number. Nothing works.

How do I manually change the starting page number for the legal document? What's the secret to get this to work?
