I have created a document in Libreoffice Writer and would like to insert page numbers in the document. I am trying to manually insert the page numbers at each footer. But once i insert a desired page number at the footer, all other pages are marked with the same page number.

How could i fix this?

For automatic page numbers we have a predefined field we can insert at any place (including your footer) using the menu item Insert - Fields:

We can define the format of the page numbering as well as an offset in case we do not start numbering with 1.
