    Hi All,

    I am having some trouble getting my formatting right in Pages.

    How can I get the page numbers, on the contents page to show in a vertical line ( and not at the end of each heading sub-heading)?

    so

    blah blah--------1
    blah-------------2
    blah blah--------3

    those dashed lines are just to get the formatting right, I don't want those in Pages.

    and not

    blah blah 1
    blah 2
    blah blah 3


    How do i get the page numbering to start on the first page from page 1 and not showing any numbers before that?

    thanks.

    Sounds like you need to learn how to use Tabs. Look on the Inspector under the Text heading (the T), in the Tabs tab. Just make sure you're applying the formatting to all of the lines in question, because it's done per paragraph.

    I can't use tabs, it's an automatic table. When I click update then the numbers go in that position.
