Hi, I'm not surprised at your answers. I may not do the books if it means all that, but if I do decide to be froggy, where on the line do the numbers go? Top, middle, end, where? Thanks again and have a blessed day. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mayrie ReNae" <mayrierenae@xxxxxxxxx>

Hi Jamie,

Unfortunately, and sorry I'm not Debby, but Word's page numbering function doesn't work for rtf files, which we need to upload to bookshare. Even if the page numbers appear, they're a function of Word, but appear outside the
field of text so aren't an actual part of the rtf file's text.  So, page
numbering has to be done by hand if it needs doing.  Sorry to bring news
that means more work.

Happy proofreading.

Mayrie

Hi, Debby, thanks for the hints and tips.  Do you put the numbers at the
bottom or the top? I did see an option for Word to number pages, and have
you done this and does it work?  Have a blessed day.

Hi Jamie!

I have noticed that chapter 1 in a book starts on page 1 and then I
back number with Roman numerals to the title page, but sometimes
that's easier to do than other times while proofing, because there
have been times when the back numbering doesn't seem to come out right.

Be sure to set your paper size to legal in the page set up menu item
that is in the file menu.  There is a tab in the dialog box called
"paper" or "paper size" that you need to find the list of sizes and
arrow down to legal.

What I often like to do to help me keep the page numbering straight is
to have a Notepad file open and type 1, then go back to Word and
proofread that page, then, once I get to the page break to start page
2, I Alt'tab back to Notepad and change the 1 to 2 and fill in the 2
in the book if page two doesn't have a number, etc.  That way, I don't
have to remember what page I just finished proofing.  I can just copy
and paste or type it into the book I'm working on when a page number is
missing.

Hi, all, there are three new wonderful titles in the checkout book
section for Christian nonfiction, and they are by Lilian Yeomans and
Lester Sumrall.  One of them I think is mistitled.  It should be the
great Physician and is healing from Heaven.  Healing from Heaven and
The reality of angels are the titles.  I downloaded two of them and
was going to proof them.  They seemed like excellent scans as far as
the words go, but many words had dashes and spaces inappropriately and
unnecessarily placed in words.  I'd do the work myself but I don't see
any page numbers whatsoever and I'm unsure and intimidated by this.
Had I been able to, I would have fixed the words and dashes and had
somebody help with the page numbering, but it doesn't seem to work
that way around here, smile.  I wouldn't want to do work in vain.  I
don't want to discourage the submitter as she's a new submitter and I
want this person to keep on submitting.  I saved instruction on
getting rid of soft page breaks but I don't know the purpose of this
and what to do after this.  Do you let Word 2003 number the pages or
what?  I used to know how to do this but forgot.  Thanks and have a
blessed day.
