Working with Page Numbering

Adding Page Numbers

To add page numbers to your project do the following:

  1. Click on the Project Tab. Check the option for "Show Page Numbers".


Note:  To remove the page numbers at any time, uncheck this option on the Project Tab.

Customizing your Page Numbers

In order to change how your page numbers appear or on which pages they appear, use the Set Numbering Style Options Menu.  To open this menu do the following:

  1. Click on the Project Tab.
  2. Click on the Set Numbering Style Button.
  3. The Options Menu will Appear.



From this Menu you have the following options:

  • Set the Font, Size and Color of the page numbers
  • Change the location where your page number appears
  • Set the starting page for your page numbers

The Font, Size and Color of the page numbers can be changed just like all other text inside The Print Shop. Click here for more information.

To Change the location where your page number appear, select from one of the following options:

  • Upper Left
  • Upper Center
  • Upper Right
  • Lower Left
  • Lower Center
  • Lower Right

Each of these options corresponds to a section of the page.

To Set the Starting Page for your page numbers, enter the page number where you want the numbering to start. 

If you begin numbering the pages on page two, page two it will use 1 for its page number.  This is good for projects that have a cover sheet or something similar that does not require a page number.

You can also uncheck the option to include a page number on page one.  This will set the first page to be numbered page 1, but the page number will not appear. Page two will be numbered page 2.
