Footer” button, a drop-down menu will appear. You can browse through the available options there to create your own page number style. This is a tutorial for creating page numbers with our free online PDF program “Smallpdf.com. It is a little like the process a designer would go through to write a book page by page. As a designer, it is the job of a book-reader to recognize what is special about a page and how it contributes to a good read. If there is a clear place to put a paragraph break and a new line here or there, it is a great place to put it. Once a reader figures out the general structure of a section, the page numbers will appear in a good place. In this tutorial, we will look at a PDF file that has three paragraphs, one at the beginning, two at the end. Each paragraph has a page number in the top left corner. The page numbers will be inserted automatically in the document. The example I am using has no page numbers, but we will create a page number format for this PDF file later. (You can create page numbers in any document.) When you have selected your page size in your online editor, click to add a header and footer. Choose between paragraphs and add page numbers using the drop-down menu. If you want to create multiple pages, set the page number option to create multiple page numbers for each document with no spacing between pages. This is how we'll create a new page number for the beginning and end of the excerpt. In the edit” dialog, type one number into each line and select all except the fourth. This will turn the first paragraph into two numbers, and the two next into three numbers and so on. As the pages are added and spaced evenly between each other, we will see the three-page numbers appear together, creating a page number format for this PDF file. Let's add one more page number. Once you have selected all the numbers, click on the add Number” button. We have two numbers on both sides of the page. Click on the add arrow to show the number form, which will bring you back to page Numbers. Click on number Form.
