Well, since I'm reading the book anyway, correcting things as I go, moving the page number and adding line spaces as necessary is no big deal. It's deleting the one at the bottom of the page and hitting return to create a line, and adding a n umber at the top of the next page with the necessary line spaces--takes just a second. It would be tedious if I had to do chore by itself, i.e., not as I was reading the book, I agree.
