One of the things in OpenOffice.org and StarOffice that's a little harder than it should be is having different page numbering in the same document.
- Having no page number on the first page but numbers on the second page and thereafter
- Having no page number on the first page, roman numerals on the second and third pages, and arabic numbering on the fourth page. Also having the page numbering restart at 1 on the fourth page.
I've blogged about it but a video is worth a thousand words.
Note: If you're saving in Microsoft Word .doc format, any styles you create will be renamed convert1, convert2, and so on when you save, close, and reopen the document. So follow the instructions for the second video but it's probably best to modify page styles that already exist rather than creating the new styles. (Right-click on the page style name and choose Modify, rather than right-clicking in the white area and choosing Create).
