Writer: page numbers vs "page number on printed document"

I'm working on a long document on Writer that includes copy-and-pasted text from several other documents. When I try to insert page numbers in the header, they only insert on a few pages and then stop. When I insert for the next section, the page numbering restarts. This pattern follows the page numbers of the original documents the text comes from, and the distinction in the page/word count preview in the bottom-left-hand corner between "Page number in document" and "Page number in printed document". Is there any way to turn this feature off and integrate the whole thing as one document so I get consistent page numbers? Or will I have to do all the page numbers manually?

Using on a Macbook Air running El Capitan if that makes a difference.
