I’m using Libre Office version 220.127.116.11.
I have an .odt file of a novel which has been formatted using the tools in Libre Office writer, but had not at that stage had the headers applied to the chapters.
I’ve copied and pasted it into a smaller sized document to turn into a pdf file for publishing as a paperback.
As the original was in 14pt Times New Roman, which is too big for a paperback, I’ve altered the font size to 12 pt and everything looks OK, and the text flows from one page to the next
The original document was not page numbered as it was for use as an ebook (and has been successfully published) and now I want to number the pages, omitting the introductory first few pages and the page beginning each chapter.
I’ve started to number the pages I want numbered by putting the cursor at the beginning of the text and used INSERT->FIELD->PAGE NUMBER.
I want the page number centered, so I’ve used FORMAT->ALIGNMENT->CENTERED and that works – but the text is still to the right of the number and when I try to get it down a line either using my Enter key or INSERT->MANUAL BREAK->LINE BREAK it messes up the formatting of the paragraph.
Can anyone advise on my problem please ?
