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.
