How to create "Continued on Page x" footers
where "x" is the number of the following page
For more "page numbering" topics, see here.
This technique works in WordPerfect 8 and
later versions (but will work in earlier versions -- probably requiring
slightly different menu selections).
Open the Reveal Codes window so you can
observe the effects of this procedure.
(OPTIONAL but suggested so you can see the effects of the procedure and
to allow displaying both page numbers -- current page and next
page -- inside ordinary Headers and Footers.)
Create a Header that displays the current page number. Go to the top of
Page 1. Create Header A (or B) with Insert|Header/Footer. Display the
normal page number at the top of all pages by inserting a Page Number
Display code in the header: Click Format|Page|Insert Page Number, then
select <Page> and click Insert, then Close. Right justify this
code, if desired, then click outside the header to get back to the main
A (or B), type in a few periods ("...") or other continuation
text/symbols (such as "Continued on page ") and insert a
"secondary page" number: Click Format|Page|Insert page number, then
select <Secondary Page> and click Insert, then Close. Click
outside the footer area to get back to the main document. (Position the
cursor on the same page as the [Footer] code you just created.)
Now for the essential part: Set the
secondary page number to one page higher than the actual page
number: Click Format|Page|Numbering. In the dialog, select <No Page
Numbering> in the "Position: " drop list. (You already have
applied page numbering in the header and footer, so you probably don't
want another number on the page!) Click the Set Value button, and in
the next window ("Values") click the Secondary page tab. Set the
secondary page number's initial value to "2" and click Apply, then OK
twice to exit all dialog windows.
The secondary page number in the footer of
each page will now display as one number higher than the page number in
the header on that page.
Note: You may want to suppress page numbering in the header on
Page 1 (only). Use Format|Page|Suppress for this. You will probably
want to suppress the footer on the last page, too.
Use a macro: The above steps can be recorded (albeit piecemeal) in a
macro. Here is the code I used in WordPerfect 9 when developing the
above technique. Note that the macro creates Footer B at the top of the
document, and the last macro command suppresses Footer B on the last
page. Thus, you may want to play the macro after you have
finished editing your document -- or, if you have made any changes
since you last played it, find and delete the [Suppress] code that was
placed on what was the last page, and play the macro again.
To copy this macro into your WordPerfect
program, see here.
