    Adding page numbers (Office XP)

    I want a default where I can add page numbers automaticallyto the bottom of my document, in the center. Right now I have to select add page numbers, then select from showing on the right to showing at the bottom center. ISn't there anyway, other than creating a macro, where I can change the default from right to center for when I want to add page numbers?

    You might try adding the page number data to your Normal.dot template.

    How do you do that? And if I add it to the normal template, then page numbers will be on every document, right? Can it be then removed?

    Re: Adding page numbers (Office XP)

    Go to a blank document. Make all the adjustments you want to on that document, including page numbers, fonts, etc.

    Then save it as Normal2.dot in

    Windows/Application data/microsoft/templates.

    When you want to use it, load it in. If you want to use the regular, template, don't do anything.

    They've changed things in XP and the Normal.dot isn't where I expect to see it. What is ideal is to change Normal.dot to the configuration you want. When I get a chance to work on the problem in more detail, I'll get back to you with details on how to change the Normal.dot permanently.

    Okay, here we go.

    Load Word

    File Open

    Go to the following

    Windows/Application data/microsoft/templates

    You'll see a file named normal.

    Load normal.

    Make the changes you want to make, including the page number feature.

    Then

    File Save.

    Quit Word.

    Load Word, and you should see the changes you made in the steps above.
