Placing Page Numbers in the Left or Right Margins
When you insert page numbers into a document, they typically appear in either the header or footer of the document. If you're a freewheeling type who likes to be a little different, you can also put page numbers into the left or right margin. It requires an extra step, but what's a little elbow grease when you're expressing your individuality?

To insert page numbers into a margin, first select Insert, Page Numbers as you would normally. Then go to View, Headers And Footers. Move your cursor over the number, and the cursor will turn into a directional icon. Grab the small box that contains your page numbers; drag the box into the left or right margin, wherever you would like the page numbers to appear; and release. Your subsequent pages will follow suit.
