Hi Jamie! I'm glad my hints and tips were helpful.If the page numbers are at the bottom, I often leave them down there and only carry them up to the top to protect any headings. If page numbers are missing on several pages at the beginning of a chapter so that I am not sure if they were at the top or bottom in the hard copy, I decide to put them all at the top. If you do that and then find a few pages on that the numbers are appearing at the bottom once they start showing up, you can keep putting them at the top, but make sure there are none lurking at the bottom or your book will be returned to you for further editing to fix any pages with double numbers. I missed one once, and so I had to delete page 95 at the bottom, because all the rest were at the top and I forgot to delete the duplicate at the bottom.
I noticed the page numbering item in Word 2003, which I haven't been using for very long, so I don't know how it works. I prefer to type them in by hand now. I am sure of that, because I am in control of the page numbering. I don't always trust software doing too much for me.
Any Word 2003 users who can explain the page numbering item, please chime in. Debby At 08:09 AM 5/23/2010, Jamie Prater wrote
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.----- Original Message ----- From: "Debby Franson" <the.bee@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Sunday, May 23, 2010 12:22 AMSubject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: new Christian books to proofread, wanted to let people knowHi 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.Debby At 11:06 AM 5/22/2010, Jamie Prater wroteHi, 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.-- mailto:<the.bee@xxxxxxxxxxx> --Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don't have.
