Pages For Mac Page Numbers

Hi sr,

  • If you want numbering to start with 1 on the second page, go to Page Number Format Page Numbers, and set Start at to 0. When you're done, select Close Header and Footer or press Esc. Tip: To get back to a header or footer to make changes, double-click in the header or footer area.
  • In Pages v5.6.1, select View menu: Show Page Thumbnails. Pages 1 thru 4 are in one section with no page numbering. At the end of page 4, you start a new section (Insert menu: Section). Select the new section in the Thumbnails. Insert a '#' in your footer, and then Insert Page number. It will show # 5. In the Toolbar, click the word Document.

With its impressive tables and images, Numbers makes it possible to create beautiful spreadsheets, and comes included with most Apple devices. Use Apple Pencil on your iPad to add useful diagrams and colorful illustrations. And with real-time collaboration, your team can work together, whether they’re on Mac, iPad, iPhone, or using a PC.

You can insert Page breaks in Pages because pages are defined in Pages as soon as you start a document.

In Numbers, pages are not defined until you print (or prepare to print) the document. Then, in Print Setup, Numbers shows you where the tables will be separated to fit on separate 'pages' of paper.

While you can't set page breaks in Numbers documents, you can place vertical and horizontal 'guide lines' in the document showing where the break will happen.

In the View menu, choose Show Rulers.

0 on the rulers is the top left corner of the printed area of Page 1.

If you are using US Letter size paper, and have set left and right margins to 0.5', your print area is 7.5' wide, so the first vertical guideline should be placed at 7.5' on the horizontal ruler at the top of the document window.

To place it:

Click in the Vertical ruler, hold the mouse button down and drag right to pull a vertical line from that ruler. Drag the line to 7.5' then release the mouse button. Repeat for as many widths needed to fit your document.

To place the Horizontal page guides, use the same process, pulling the horizontal guides from the horizontal ruler, and placing them at intervals equal to the print area height on each 'page'.
