like the title says.


there is a thread on a little bit back but I was unable to get it to work and it was locked.


I am trying to add page numbers to my dissertation. Non-body needs to be in lowercase roman numerals in the bottom middle

Body needs to be regular numbers in the top left.

As an added twist i have a landscape page that needs to have the number in a different spot relative to everything else.

i tried doing section breaks but it didn't seem to do anything.

this is Word for Mac 2008. I do have office 2007 for windows where i can try things if mac people don't know the answer

    Did you remember to tell it to not Link to Previous for the headers/footers of the new sections? You can then re-start numbering and change styles however you like for each section, so long as you remember to turn off Link to Previous.
