pdf page numbers don’t match document page numbers

Q: pdf page numbers don’t match document page numbers

I have some reference books I use and in all of them I have this problem:

The number written on the document pages doesn't match the number my pdf reader says, and for every document it has a different offset. That is, for example when I go to page 16, then on the page itself it's written that it's page 5 and not 16.

It's an annoying problem.
Is there any way to fix this by changing the pdf numbering or is there any workaround?


Preferred Solution: pdf page numbers don’t match document page numbers

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Is there some way to make it so page numbers display on the printed pages of an Adobe .pdf file? I converted a Word document to .pdf, but the Word document did not have the numbered pages. I now want to add the numbers in Adobe Reader, but it looks like I'll have to go back to the original Word document, add headers which include the page number, and then re-convert it to .pdf. Is that correct? If I could do it within Adobe Reader, that would be preferable.

A:Adding Page Numbers to .PDF document

The file is a creation from an original Word file, the page numbers would need to exist in the Word file.

It would be a nightmare if in creating a PDF it was able to assign new printed page numbers as these would often not align with the original document and TOC's would be incorrect.

In Word 2002, I have a form letter that I merged the name and addresses. The problem is the number of pages in the footer. Using Page x of y, the page number is correct, each section restarts the page number. But the number of pages is the entire document, not just the section of the merged record.

I am printing a Microsoft Word 2007 document and the numbers are cut off at the bottom of the page. This is using an HP7100 inkjet. Part of the footer is lost as well.

When I change the printer, and print from our Canon ir2018 LASER, everything is printed in its entirety. There are no problems, and that's with me not altering the Word file whatsoever.

I am able to print an Excel spreadsheet using the HP7100 until about 1/4" of the bottom of the page. These page numbers in the Word 2007 are much higher up (physically) and should not be out of the range of the printer considering what it can do for the Excel file.

Lastly, when viewing the document in "Print Preview" in Word, if I have the HP7100 set to print, it does not show that the footer will be printed. If I change the Printer to the Canon, the footer returns. So Print Preview accurately tells me what will be printed based on which printer I select to print from.

Is this an issue in Microsoft Word? How can I print these footers and page numbers from my HP7100?

I can think of two things to try.

The first thing would be to go to Tools -Options in word and look at the view tab. Uncheck the Status Bar and click on OK. This will turn off the status bar. Now try turning it back on and seeing if it helps.

Second thing I can think of is to try repairing Office. Just use the add/remove in the control panel. When you go to remove it, you will get the option to repair, uninstall or change features.

Ok, I thought of three

Third thing I can think of is to Download and Apply the Service Pack for Office XP. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/searchdl.asp?

After loading the Word 2000 SR-1 disk, I am unable to insert page numbers [I get a footer that states (PAGE)] and the former blue hyperlinks are now in black and state {hyperlink and the web address}. I am writing a thesis and this is causing great stress!

Before loading the disk I had no problems.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

A:Hypertext & page Numbers

Hi there!

This is a copy of a Word 2000 helpfile - trust it points the way to solving your problem.

Why does {PAGE}, {DATE}, or another code appear in the header or footer?
When you add page numbers, dates, times, and so on to a header or footer, Word inserts fields for these items. Fields ensure that page numbers are automatically updated as you change the document and that dates, times, and other items are updated when you print the document. If you see field codes such as {PAGE} or {DATE} instead of the actual page numbers, dates, times, and so on, press ALT+F9.

Clindeman has reported via private messaging that problem thus solved.

The task handed me was to clean up this document the text from an out of print book. The intent is to publish the document as a PDF booklet. What I have are pages in letter size. There are two obstacles I need help on.

The first are the page numbers on every page. I have Googled 'removing all page numbers from a word 2007 document' and there are many suggestions - and though I have attempted to use all those tips I am unable to remove the page numbers. I have attached a few pages in the hope that there is a remedy.

Secondly I need to adjust the pages so that the fit to what was the original book text page size: 5.5 x 8.8
It's not to be exact rather that the final PDF document should look and read as the original in a 5.5 x 8.8 presentation.

If there are comments to assist in the project I will be most grateful. Thanks!

A:Removing all page numbers and then some...

Your source document has a lot of strange formatting in it. I would start by selecting all the text (Ctrl-A), creating a new blank document, then Paste Special>Unformatted Text. This will remove all the section breaks and so on.

It will probably also remove the page numbers, which in your source document are inserted as images in the footers. To check, go to Insert>Header & Footer>Footer>Remove Footer.

Than set the page size in Page Layout>Size>More Paper Sizes...

This should get you most of the way there. When it looks the way you want it, Save As...>PDF.

Alright...two issues here. #1: I have my document split into sections, and I can't figure out how to delete page numbers from just one section, even though all the help information I read says I should be able to. "Page numbers are section specific not document specific". #2. Assuming I can resolve issue #1, is there anyway to delete page numbers from just one or two pages within a section without splitting the document into more sections?

A:Deleting Page Numbers

Hi Mathias,
I suspect that your problem with deleting page numbers from just one section is that the page numbers are contained in the footer and the footer for each section is set to "same as previous". To check, place your cursor somewhere in the section for which you want to delete the page numbers. Go to View/Header and Footer. On the Header and Footer toolbar, click the toggle button for "Switch Between Header and Footer". The top of the footer box should say Footer-Section # on the left. If it says "Same as Previous" on the right, click the "Same as Previous" button on the toolbar to unlink the footer for this section from the previous section. You should also go to the next section's footer (if any) and deselect the "Same as Previous" button. Return to the footer for the section in which you want to delete the page numbers. You should now be able to highlight the page number and delete it without affecting the prior or subsequent sections.

As for your second question, I'm unaware of a way to delete page numbers from select pages within a section. Someone else might have some ideas though.

Hope that helps - it feels like I've made it more complicated than it really is, so post back if you have questions.

Good morning (to those of you in the western hemisphere).

In MS Word, when I insert page numbers into a doc, and look in print view, I can see the numbers (in light gray) at the bottom of the page. But when I print the document, NO NUMBERS?


A:printing page numbers

Try increasing:

Your bottom margin to 1.25"
Your footer margin to .75"

If that works, you may want to do it in a plain document, then hit the "default" button. Many printers, particularly those we use at home, aren't capable of printing that close to the bottom of the page.

I looked through the site but didn't see a similar question. I use Windows 7, Firefox, and Word 2003. I have used Page numbers for some years but suddenly, starting yesterday, the number will NOT appear on the top, right side of the page. When I choose top of page, right side the number appears on the top LEFT side. Two days ago I finished a manuscript with no problem, 118 pages, and the numbers appeared on the top, right side. Yesterday I printed out Chapter 1, four pages, numbers where they should be. Today I started with Chapter 2, page 5, but it will NOT appear on the right side. I don't know what I did to make this problem come about. Any suggestions?

A:Solved: Page numbers.

O.K., my problem is solved. I went online and asked the question and the solution is a combination of several approaches. When Insert brought the page number up on the left side, I brought up Header/Footer, highlighted the number on the left side, clicked on CTRL + R, the number zipped to the right, I clicked Save, and it works. It's a pain, but that's the only my manuscript looks the way I want it. Thanks.

I have creatde a report, no problem there, but the following occurs.
Ik have a formula that works perfectly:
= [Page] & " van " & Round((([totaal]-44)/61)+0.5,0)+1
I reset the Page to 1 for each group.
The variable [totaal] contains the number of lines for this particular section:
It's a list of student numbers and the exams they have taken over a number of years
Each exam code is one line.
I have a query which is a select distinct Student number and counts the number of exam codes.
000001 56
000002 67
000003 130
etc etc
The list is about 3000 student numbers.

The formula then displays the Page 1 of 3 in the case of 67 lines

That works fine too.
I run the report and at first glanec it's OK.
I go to the last page, no problem
Then flip back page by page and someweher isn the middle and not for all selectiones instead op showing Page 1 of X it starts showing Page 2345 of 3 where 2345 is the actual page if counting pages.

I have checked the query and there are no negative numbers in the TOTAAL field and well, thats the problem there is nothing logical to make this happen.

Word Version: Microsoft Word 2003 (SP1)

Basically, all the paging is messed up. In addition, there is some sort of formatting issue. Here are the problems:

1. After copying and pasting like a half page from another document, word generates page of blank space. This blank space does not go away despite backspacing or highlighting and then back spacing. So in the document, there will be page-long blank spaces here and there. Very annoying.

2. After inserting page numbers (with default format settings), some of the page numbers don't show up.

3. So I tried deleting all page numbers and re-inserting new ones (again, default format settings), the format gets messed up further. For example, sometimes, the top of a page would have 19 and on the bottom of the same page, it would have 20.

4. So I tried deleting and re-inserting again. This time, all the pages turned to "1"s.

5. Also, on the bottom left corner of a Word Document, it usually displays the page info: "Page X Sec Y X/Z", where X is the page user is currently on, Z is the total number of pages in the document, and Y is the section number. Problem is, the Xs don't match. So when I click on say page 45, it would show this "Page 45 Sec Y 59/211".

I tried all the easy solutions like transferring the document to another computer as well as copying and pasting everything into a new document. Interesting... Read more

I have been making gifts-in-a-card where I need to have 2 page numbers on a sheet, with 7 sheets in total with doubled sides. (Just putting them in a textbox at the bottom wasn't a solution because they would move very easily if any other text were added or removed.) In using WP2000 I had no problem putting the right numbers on a page*, but I found that the text had a tendency to move...from the time that I proofread the screen and pressed on the print icon. This was VERY maddening! Some of the text that was on the first sheet would move down to the second page and I would have to print it all over again. That wasn't noticable until I looked at the hard copy, and having printed out a dozen sheets sometimes it was frustrating and expensive!

I could not find any way to put in the numbers on a page I needed with Ms Word 2000, although I found out that if I could it would be much simpler. Now that I have MS WORD 2003 I thought I had the the solution to my problem because I can have 2pp per sheet with that software. But unfortunately it only went so far. I could put in numbers 1-4 but not in the order I needed them* Do you know of any way that I can place 2 different numbers (not in sequence) on the bottom of a page in the MS WORD 2003 software before printing it?

A:Putting 2 different *page numbers when there are 2 pp per sheet.

If you select "Book Fold" instead of "2 pages per sheet" in page set up, Word 2003 should get the page content sequence correct on each side of each sheet.

If you simply want a page number at the same location at the top or bottom of each page, put it in the header or footer in your document and then have automatic entry of the correct page number in the header or footer. Word gives you the option to have different headers and footers for odd and even pages.

If you want the page number in some other location, like in an outside margin, put a text box on each page with its location locked relative to the edges of the page or the margins and then select text wrap for the body text as need be. You can either manually put the text of the page number in each text box or put a field code in for the page number. Any changes in the body text will flow around the test boxes but the boxes themselves will not move on the page.

I have to print out an assignment I've done in Excel and Word, which includes both portrait and landscape pages.

The whole assignment will be bound in a portrait orientation, so all landscape pages will be sideways (i.e reading bottom to top).
The pages have to be numbered, which is easy enough to set up, although the landscape sheets (Excel) will print the page number at the foot of the sheet, which will appear as the right hand side when it is bound.

I need the numbers to print at the landscape sheets' left hand side (and side-on), so that when I bind them, each page has a page number appearing at the bottom of the sheet in the same place. Does this make sense?

I know I could print blank sheets with the page numbers at the foot in a portrait orientation and then put the paper back in the printer and print the landscape stuff without page numbers (!), but isn't there a way to make Excel do this for you?
