How can I change the page number of the first page of my document to something other than '1'?


  1. Click in the first paragraph of your first page and choose Format > Paragraph (or right-click and select Paragraph from the pop-up menu).
  2. Select the Text Flow tab.
  3. Under Breaks, select Insert.
  4. In this box, Type should be set to Page, and Position should be set to Before.
  5. Select With Page Style and choose Default as Page Style (or any other style according to your needs).
  6. Now choose the page number you need. Note that the '0' in the Page Number dropdown list does not denote a page number but simply means that the present page number won't be changed.
