Open office header issue

Sean D-3

Okay so I'm trying to label each page in the header p. 1 p.2 ect ect but this is what happens I follow the rediculously long steps to just be able to write in the header this:


Open a new text document.

Choose Format - Styles and Formatting and click the Page Styles icon in the Styles and Formatting window.

Right-click "Right Page" in the list of page styles and choose Modify.

In the Page Styles dialog, click the Header tab.

Select Header on and click the Organizer tab.

In the Next Style box, select "Left Page".

Click OK.

In the Styles and Formatting window, right-click "Left Page" in the list of page styles and choose Modify.

In the Page Styles dialog, click the Header tab.

Select Header on and click the Organizer tab.

In the Next Style box, select "Right Page".

Click OK.

Double-click "Right Page" in the list of page styles to apply the style to the current page.

Enter text or graphics in the header for the Left Page style. After the next page is added to your document, enter text or graphics in the header for the Right Page style. But then after That in the headers all I can get is p.1 p2. p1. p2 Why can I not change the next pages after the first two? A new header option would be nice I dunno why it's so complicated with this page right page left stuff.

Maybe it needs a few steps , but it brings you power and flexability too.

Your steps were right, as far as I could see.
What isn't clear, is if you entered '1' and '2'as such, or if you used
fields. (Insert|Fields|Page number).
If you did use fields, something is wrong with your installation/version.
You should give more details then, so that we can help.

Kindest regards,
Cor
