    hi Gary
    timely show..I have a document with only 2 sections and as you said, in the thumbnail view all the pages after the first page in each section are indented. However I have one spot within a section where one page is not indented (i.e. looks like the beginning of a section) and the rest are. I turned on the Invisibles to look for a Section code but don’t see any.
    Appreciate any hints if this makes sense to you :)
    thx

      Really hard to say without being there. You’ll just have to experiment and play around with it to find out where the problem lies.

        thanks – not a big deal, doesn’t seem to affect anything…

    This was just the info I needed now.
    I save all of the MacMost Newsletters, is there an index or table of contents available that will update with each new MacMost Newsletter? I need to find answers to questions as they arise!
    Thanks,

      Click on the Videos link at the top of any page at MacMost and you’ll get a list of videos by category. Or, better still, use the search box up there to find things quickly.

    Gary, great video as always. How do I omit the page number on the first page of my document and begin numbering on page 2 (numbered as page 2)?

      A few ways to do it. Click on the footer on page 2 and you’ll see the option to start a new footer for pages 2-X. Set the page numbering like you want. Then go back to page 1 and edit the footer there to remove the page number.
