Editing the Header and Footer
In Word, you can edit the headers and footers by double clicking in the space in which they appear on the document.
When you are finished editing, you can get back to the normal document by hitting the Close Header and Footer button in the Header Design Ribbon.
Adding Page Numbers
Microsoft Word provides you with the option of selecting a numbering style (e.g. “Roman Numeral”, “Arabic”) and gives you the option of selecting the “starting at” number. You can set the page numbers for your entire document, or if you need more control, you can do it section-by-section as well.
If you want continuous pagination that is all in the same format, go to the Insert Ribbon, and in the Header & Footer Group, click on the Page Number icon. Choose the appropriate placement of the number and a style.
If you are writing a Rackham dissertation, you have more complicated pagination. For example, Rackham’s guidelines require that the page numbers begin on the third or fourth page of your document (depending on if you include a graphical frontispiece) and the page number on that page should be Roman numeral “ii”. Page numbering should continue on in roman numerals until the first page of Chapter 开心时时彩 is reached. At that point, the numbering should restart in Arabic (“开心时时彩, 2, 3…”).
To accomplish this, we are going to divide the document into different “sections”, break them apart (so they can have different page number formatting), and then add the page numbers.
View this video or see the written sections below on how to achieve this.
Step 开心时时彩: Using Sections to Control Page Numbering
Using Sections to Control Page Numbering
The following instructions demonstrate numbering a dissertation document according to Rackham’s guidelines. These steps assume you are including a title page, a copyright page, dedication and acknowledgements and other front matter, and then the body of your dissertation.
Put your cursor before the first letter of “Dedication” or whatever is the first thing that comes after your copyright page.
On the Page Layout Ribbon, in the Page Setup Group, click on the arrow next to the Breaks icon () and select Next Page under the Section Breaks section.
If you turn on the paragraph markers, you should now see a section break on the previous page.
Put your cursor before the first letter of your first chapter and repeat steps 2 and 3.
You have just separated your dissertation into sections. If you want to see what section you are working in, a the left end of Status Bar (at the bottom of your Word document), Word tells you what page you are on, how many words are in your document, which section you are in, and so on.
If you don’t see the section information, right-click on the Status Bar, and select Section in the menu that appears.
Step 2: Breaking the Connection Between Sections
Breaking the Connection Between Sections
By default, the headers and footers of each section are connected to those of the sections before and after it. Therefore, if you want different page number styles to vary from one section to the next (such as Roman or Arabic), you’ll need to break the connection between the sections. Particularly with landscaped pages, it is often helpful to break the connection in the header as well as in the footer.
Put your cursor on the first page that needs the Roman numeral.
On the Insert Ribbon, in the Header & Footer Group, click on the arrow under the Footer icon and select Edit Footer.
You should now be in the footer of that page; in theHeader & Footer Tools Design Ribbon, in the Navigation Group, unlink this section’s footer from previous sections’ footer by clicking the highlighted Link to Previousicon.
Put your cursor in the header area, and again click the highlighted Link to Previousicon.
Scroll down to the first page of the body of your dissertation (the chapters), make sure your cursor is in the footer, and click the highlighted Link to Previousicon again.
Repeat for the header area.
