I have a civil rights legal filing deadline in about 32 hours, please pardon my stressed-out urgency.
I am using LibreOffice which has been positive for my limited experience: to be emphasized is that I am not a skilled LO or MS Word user. “Casual” would be a stretch. What is available to me is LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 running on Mac OSX 10.8.5
Due to circumstances far beyond my control, I had to create an emergency document purely using LO Default Style.
Asking for guidance how to apply different page-numbering schemes to different page ranges of an existing document?
For the life of me, I can’t seem to make anything work with Page Styles (don’t even seem to be able to create and then apply new page Styles without issues, user error I’m sure). As I am struggling with neuro issues that impact my reading/writing, I would greatly appreciate something approaching step-by-step instructions.
— Existing document
I have an existing document, ~50 pages, all created using Default Style.
It does contain some page breaks that I inserted (Insert > Page Break) when ie a page had small amount of text and the next topic/section needed to be started on a new page.
I already have a Header set on all pages, it contains only a centered page number in Arabic numerals. At moment it is set to start displaying page number on page 2.
I need to modify the page numbering scheme ASAP to split the document into four sequential sections, each using different page numbering scheme. For safety sake I need to do this somehow which doesn’t impact the existing text and its simplistic formatting (use of bold, italic, and some centered headers). Sections 2, 3, and 4 are works in progress that will expand with more content. Those sections’ page numbers also should appear in a Table of Contents with page numbers in the appropriate numbering style (although I seem to recall seeing some info that ToC doesn’t necessarily maintain different numbering styles of page numbering?).
section 1 (cover sheet only): display no page number
section 2: page number style = Roman small (i, ii, iii, iv, …); start displaying page number on page ii
section 3: page number style - Arabic (1, 2, 3, …); start displaying page number on page 1
section 4: page number style App-n, where n is Arabic (1, 2, 3, …); start displaying page number on page App-1
Thank you to the community for any guidance.
