Page numbers add polish and organization to any publication. In Adobe PageMaker 7, page numbers are rather easy to add, but the function is a little tricky to find the first time. Once activated, page numbers magically appear throughout the chosen project.

Step 1

Open a project in PageMaker 7.

Step 2

Select the text function from the toolbox. It looks like a capital T.

Step 3

Click on the L/R function in the lower-left corner of the screen. It is located underneath the ruler.

Step 4

Click on the master page where the page numbers will be placed and press "Ctrl+Alt+P." The page number should appear.

Step 5

Click on the opposite master page where the page numbers will be placed and press "Ctrl+Alt+P." The page number should appear.

Step 6

Click on the page number next to the L/R function, and the page numbers should all show. As more pages are added to the project, the page numbers will automatically appear.

Tip

Maximize the program so it covers the entire screen. This makes all the functions easier to see.
