Problem with page numbers when pasting from multiple docs (again)

I’ve had this problem before & it was resolved last time by asking on here (thanks lads), but have no idea how to find the post again, so here we go:

I’m having to make a new document in Writer that includes text pasted from a separate Writer doc. The page numbering restarts with each section pasted from a different doc & the page count in bottom-left displays similar things: “Page x of y (Page z)”. If anyone can remind how to fix this utterly pointless automatic feature I’d be grateful - older topics seem to suggest pressing f11 to go into a particular tab, but that doesn’t work now.

lol here we are lads Writer: page numbers vs "page number on printed document"
