Invalid Page numbers

I have a large document with over 100 pages. I have created two master pages that assign odd and even page numbering. When I go to print the document it automattically shows SEC1:235, and will not let me select a range to print from. I do not want to print all 235 pages at once, but I do not know how to resolve this. When I try to enter in a range, for ex. 26-120, it tells me the page numbers are not valid. Help!

Hello,
Try typing "SEC1:26 — SEC1:120". Maybe this will work?

SOURCE: Adobe Acrobat Pro 7.0 Can't get page numbers to show

OK, That's why it's not working.. In order to get them on there, do the following:

Once you have loaded the page into acrobat, goto the Document Menu, mouse over header and foot, and choose add..

In there, there will be a button that will say "insert page number", just click on that (only once), then click "ok".. That will add page 1...2...3...4, etc to the top of every page.

As a side note: you can also choose where to put the page number by clicking in one of the text boxes marked "Left Header", "Center Header", etc.. and then click on "insert page number".. You will be able to see a preview first before actually adding the numbers..

Prints blank page


Have you checked the print que
Printer problems can be a real hassle.
From time to time, due to document layout or settings on your computer, in your software of choice, or even on your printer, a blank page may get "printed" with the rest of your document.
Fortunately, this issue is a simple one to troubleshoot.
Click "Print Preview" when you are finished with your document and ready to print.
Observe your document.
If you see an extra, blank page, you have created a second page.
To delete the second page, close Print Preview, go back into the document and eliminate any blank lines in your documents that you may not need.
You may also find an inadvertent page break at the end of your document.
Place your cursor on its symbol and delete it.
Locate the symbol by clicking on the Show Formatting paragraph icon in the toolbar.


Circumvent this "ghost page" if you do not see a second (or additional) blank page in Print Preview.

Specify the number of pages you wish to print, within the Print dialogue box.
This is typically done by selecting the "Print From" option, then entering the page numbers desired.
If your document happens to be ten pages (without, of course, that final blank page), then enter in the "Print From" field the numbers "1-10".
This will print only pages 1 through 10, without an eleventh (blank) page.

How do insert page numbers on page maker automatically?


To have Adobe® PageMaker® automatically number your pages, if the template isn't used, place a page number marker on the Master page of the document.
  • Go to the Master Pages by clicking on the page icons with the L and R on them at the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • Using the Text tool, draw a text block in the general area for the page numbers.
  • On the Mac, press Command+Option+P or in Windows, Ctrl+Alt+P.
  • Depending on the page you are on, the page marker will show up in the text block, LM on the left page, RM on the right page.
Auto page Number

  • This text can be formatted like any other text on your pages.
  • Select the Pointer tool and move the copy block into the correct position.
  • Click on a page icon to go to a page in your file and the actual page number will appear.
  • If the page icons do not have the correct page numbers on them, go to the File menu, select Document Setup and change the Starting page # field to the correct starting page number.

My document has a cover and a table of contents. I want page numbering with one to start on the third page. I did do the page break for the cover and the contents and was able to start the document on page...


There are two ways to do this. The first way SOMETIMES works. If you don't have luck, try the second method.

Method 1:
  • Delete the page break between the end of page 2 and page 3
  • Position your cursor at the start of page 3.
  • Click on Insert / Break / Next page
  • Select all the text form page 3 to the end of the document.
  • Click on Insert / Page numbers. UNCHECK "show number on first page"
  • Click on <Format>. Make sure "Start at" is selected and the value is "1". Select <OK>
  • Select <OK>
Method 2:
You need to work with the headers and footers. When you are done, you'll have two different footer sections that are NOT connected.
  • Add a "next page" section break as you did above.
  • Click on View / Header and Footer
  • On the Header and Footer toolbar, Click on the icon for "switch between header and footer"
  • page down to page 3. Click on the "link to previous" icon on the header and footer toolbar
  • Click on Insert / Page numbers. UNCHECK "show number on first page"
  • Click on <Format>. Make sure "Start at" is selected and the value is "1".
For some reason I occasionally have to do this twice to get it to stick but eventually it should work. The key is to make sure you have two separate footer sections; the first section is page 1 and 2 without page numbers then the second section (starting with physical page 3) that has page numbers starting with page 1

Double sided printing Pixma MP520


here's how:

print double sided pages

1. Set your computer software for double sided printing if you have a printer that is compatible. Double sided printers are generally professional style machines, and most offices, schools and libraries will have them. On a PC, go to the drop down "File" menu and select "Double Sided Printing" under the "Preferences" or "Properties" window and print. If you have a MAC, click "Copies and Pages" under the "File" menu, select "Layout" and then click on "Long-Edged Binding" and print.
2.Print double sided with your standard home printer, again, by setting your PC writing software. When you are ready to print, click on the drop down "File" menu and select "Print." From the "Print" window select "odd pages only," or "even pages only."
3.Set your odd and even pages a bit differently if you are working with MAC writing software. Select "Print" from the drop down "File" menu and click on the arrow to drop the "Copies & Pages" menu. Under the "Copies & Pages" menu, select "Paper Handling" and then click on "Odd Numbered Pages" or "Even Numbered Pages."
4.Select "Odd Pages Only" or "Odd Numbered Pages" and then print as usual. It is a good idea to mark the top of your first page with a pencil so that you know the direction and side of the page your printer prints. Use the mark to determine how to turn your pages and place them back in the printer. Select "Even Pages Only" or "Even Numbered Pages" and print again. $('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ e = $(e); e.find('img').error(function(){ $(this).unbind(); e.remove(); }); });

TOC Page Numbers Don't Display in PDFed Document


Apparently Adobe doesn't consider importing pagination data from Word documents to be important enough to code Acrobat to find Microsoft's record of the page numbers and import them properly. I would suggest using Adobe Acrobat 7's page numbering feature, and simply number your pages appropriately, to match your table of contents.
