I am trying to add page numbers to a document in Pages. The document is in Page Layout as opposed to word processing and is a custom sized page. When I go to Insert, nearly all the possible choices, including Page Number, are inactive. Any ideas?

You need to put the page numbers in the header or footer, just like in a word processing document. Be default, the headers & footers are turned off in a page layout document. Use the document inspector to turn them on. It also helps to show layout so you can see where they are.
