When I press and hold ALT and typed in U+2018 (single quote) or ALT+2018 I do not get a single quote but this character Ò. What keys do I use to get single quotes 2018 and 2019?

2020-01-07 22:45:51 +0100 marked best answer Page number on left, page number on righ

I'm writing a book and want to start 'page 1' on page 13 on the right. I have researched and followed many steps but got no where.

What I did: Insert>Header and Footer> (I can see page '1' on the left and page '2' on the left hand side of the second page but I want it on the right hand side).

In Styles and Formatting: selected 'page styles' and selected First page (page layout set to right only) but no where here to set page 13 as the first page and the hard return symbol is still on the left hand side not right hand side where I want it to be.

What am I doing wrong?
