When the urge hits you to regress a few centuries and use Roman numerals to tally a document’s
by following Steps 1 and 2 in the preceding section. Simply choose the style you want from the
Number Format drop-down list.
Removing page numbers
To strip out page numbers you inserted into your document, choose the Remove Page Numbers
command from the Page Number menu (in the Header & Footer group on the Insert tab).
The Remove Page Numbers command rids your document of only those page numbers you inserted
by using the Page Number menu. If you manually added a page number in a header or footer, you
must manually delete it. See Chapter 14 .
New Pages from Nowhere
As you type your document, Word adds new, blank pages for you to write on. These pages are
appended to the end of the document, so even if you’re typing in the midst of a chapter, the extra pages
keep appearing so that no text is lost and nothing falls off the edge. That’s all normal and good.
For those times when you need to stick a blank page in the middle of a document, or when you want
to start your text at the top of a new page, Word provides two interesting commands. This section
Starting on a new page
To start typing on a new page in your document, you insert a manual page break, or hard page
break. The simplest way to do this is to press the Ctrl+Enter key combination. Word then begins a
new page On That Very Spot. All text before the insertion pointer is on the previous page, and all
text afterward is on a new page.
You can also insert a hard page break by choosing the Page Break command from the Pages group
on the Insert tab. If you don’t see the Pages group, click the Pages button to choose the Page Break
Keep these points in mind when you’re dealing with hard page breaks:
Never, never, never start a new page by repeatedly pressing the Enter key until a
new page pops up. That just leads to trouble later as you edit your document.
Pressing Ctrl+Enter inserts a hard page-break character into your document. That character
stays there, always creating a hard page break no matter how much you edit the text on previous
