I have fully switched from Ms Office suite to LibreOffice however one thing I really miss about office is how it handled page numbering. All I had to do was just click on the insert bar and simply choose page number option and then voila Office would automatically insert the page numbers in the position I want it to be. How can I get such functionality in LibreOffice


Please see this link for instructions on inserting page numbers! https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Inserting_Page_Numbers_in_Footers

  • Thanks it certainly does the job but not as effortless as the manner in which Office handles this operation – Mysterio Jan 10 '13 at 15:21
  • If you have problem with page number starting from 1 in the middle of the document try saving, close and reopening. It's a bug. Here you could find more info. – Pablo Bianchi Sep 25 '16 at 5:16
