Restart page numbering for each chapter

If your document contains multiple chapters, you may want to restart page numbering for each chapter. You can even include the chapter number as part of the page number — for example, 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 and 2-1, 2-2, 2-3.

ShowRestart page numbering with 1 for each chapter or section

  1. If you haven't already done so, insert a section break (section break: A mark you insert to show the end of a section. A section break stores the section formatting elements, such as the margins, page orientation, headers and footers, and sequence of page numbers.) where you want to restart page numbering.

ShowHow?

  1. Click in a section (section: A portion of a document in which you set certain page formatting options. You create a new section when you want to change such properties as line numbering, number of columns, or headers and footers.) or select multiple sections in which you want to restart page numbering.
  2. On the Insert menu, click Page Numbers.
  3. Click Format.
  4. In the Start at box, enter 1.

ShowInclude chapter numbers along with page numbers

  1. Use the Bullets and Numbering dialog box to format your chapter titles with a built-in heading style (heading style: Formatting applied to a heading. Microsoft Word has nine different built-in styles: Heading 1 through Heading 9.).

ShowHow?

  1. On the Format menu, click Bullets and Numbering, and then click the Outline Numbered tab.
  2. Click a chapter-numbering style (one that includes the text "Heading 1," "Heading 2," and so on), and then click OK.
  3. If you are creating a new heading, type the text you want for the numbered heading, and then press ENTER.
  4. To add the next numbered heading, go to the next chapter heading, click the arrow next to the Style box on the Formatting toolbar, and then select the heading style you specified in step 2.
  1. If your document is divided into sections (section: A portion of a document in which you set certain page formatting options. You create a new section when you want to change such properties as line numbering, number of columns, or headers and footers.), click in a section or select multiple sections in which you want to include chapter numbers along with page numbers.
  2. On the Insert menu, click Page Numbers.
  3. Click Format.
  4. Select the Include chapter number check box.
  5. In the Chapter starts with style box, click the heading style applied to the chapter titles.
  6. In the Use separator box, click the character that you want to separate the chapter number from the page number.
