The page numbers can be displayed in the document headers and footers. Page numbers can be displayed in either a single header or footer, or both at the same time.

Page numbers are added and deleted within the selected section of the document. In this case, the following rules apply:

If a document contains only one section, page numbers are added and deleted throughout the document.

If a section has a different header and/or footer for the first page, the number on the first page and the numbers on the other pages of the section need to be added and deleted separately.

If a section is configured with different headers and/or footers for even and odd pages, the numbers on pages similar to the one selected when adding or deleting are added and deleted. For example, if you select an even page, numbers on even-numbered pages are added or deleted.

The page number is a text box.
