Choose Numbers from the Display menu. Select Page from the submenu. This brings up the Page Numbers dialog. Here you can change the way page numbers are displayed in your score.
These page numbers are independent of the page numbers embedded in the headers and footers using the %P command. If you want to use page numbers in your headers or footers, you should make sure the box to the right of Show page numbers is unchecked in this dialog.
If you want page numbers to appear when you print your score, check the
box to the left of
Show page numbers.
Type in the number at which you want page numbering to start in the box to the right of Start numbering at. For example, if you want to insert your piece into a larger document which already has fifteen pages, start numbering at sixteen.
You can choose to have a page number on your first page or wait until page two to start showing page numbers. Select this by checking Page 1 or Page 2 in the Start Page section of the Page Numbers dialog.
Select the position of your page numbers on the page by choosing Top or Bottom in the Vertical section and then either Left, Center, Right, or Alternating Left/Right in the Horizontal section.
