Do you mean you want the second page, the first after your title page to have the number 1?Is there any way to start page numbering on page 2? Reason is my first page is my cover page. I have the "First page is different" checked under the Layout Inspector, but page 2 is still numbered as page 2.
In Pages in iWork 09', if you go under Insert>Auto Page Numbers, there's an option to uncheck a box that says "Include Number On First Page"
Once you've unchecked that and set up your wanted settings, I've noticed that even though it doesn't show on the first page, the second page that would have otherwise said "1" says "2". I guess that's just the default setting.
To fix that, first, click on the footer area, then go to Inspector and go to Layout and click the Section tab. From there, you'll see the under the Page Numbers heading, "Start At: ___". Change that from "2" to "1" and the problem should be fixed.
iWork should do something about this so it's not so complicated
But hey, it works, right?
All you need to do is use sections (just as described above): Section 1 is your cover page, Section 2 is your first page, Section 3 is the rest of your paper (excluding the bibliography) and Section 4 is the bibliography.I'm having a similar problem with this since Turabian requires the cover page, unnumbered, and the second page (which is the first page of the actual paper) numbered page 1 at the bottom, but subsequent pages numbered in the top right corner.
Wish I could see the embedded images. However . . . like other users on this thread, the only action I have found that works (to start numbering pages, starting with '1', after a single un-numbered cover page) is to create 2 sections: the first for the cover page, the second for the rest of the document. This gives me two page '1's, the cover and the following page. I then delete the page number in the footer of the cover page to get what I want. Only being an Apple user for 3 years, I find it almost unbelievable that a cash-flush company such as Apple is apparently ignoring this very basic issue. I'll bet that a small fraction of a single Apple exec's bonus would pay for a programmer to address these ongoing issues in their basic suite of apps. It is snags like this that keep me from encouraging more MS users to switch to a Mac. I hope a reader tells me "I'm all wrong, that Pages '09 is SO intuitive, how could I be so dense." then gives a working solution. I'm tired of playing with check boxes, sections, etc. to simply remove a single page from the numbering sequence. Incredible, my stupidity for using Pages and wasting this much time on so simple an effort and Apple's apparent abandonment of the product.If you follow these instructions, it will work as you want:
1. Make a new document or use the one you want to modify
2. At the start of the doc, insert new section (Insert > Section Break)
3. Now insert page numbers for the new section (Insert > Auto Page Numbers...). Use the following settings in the sheet:
4. Then go to Inspector and make the following settings:
That should leave the first page blank and start numbering of your second section at 1.
