Do one of the following:
Change the page-number format, such as 1, i, or a
Note If your document contains multiple chapters or sections, you may want to restart page numbering with 1 for each section.
Insert "Page X of Y" page numbers
If you want the page numbers at the bottom of the page, click Switch Between Header and Footer on the Header and Footer toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.), and then, in the footer area, click where you want to place the page numbers.
Change the font and size of page numbers
If you inserted page numbers by using the Page Numbers command on the Insert menu, make sure to select the page number inside its frame (frame: A container that you can resize and position anywhere on the page. To position text or graphics that contain comments, footnotes, endnotes, or certain fields, you must use a frame instead of a text box.).
A cross-hatched frame border appears around the page number.
