If otherwise, IMO the choice should particularly depend on who’s going to do the “legwork”. If you have a team spreading the load feel free to be as creative as you like. If you are a 1-man documentation system which has been my experience, go for a a procedure which minimises the effort. IMO/EX this is usually the least creative.
In some publications you want to start your page numbering on a page other than the first page. You can achieve this with a combination of master pages and document numbering in word Watch the video and/or follow these step-by-step instructions.
A best practice that we recommend to our clients is to create a base/folio master –with styled and positioned footers and current page number special characters– on which all other masters are based. This allows a footer that may contain date or issue information to be updated once and the changes are reflected in all of the master pages. If your masters only have current page number special characters then you can just add them to each master and the page numbers will be reflected when each master is applied to your document pages.
I have the page numbering macro. It works on new files; however, it doesn’t work on specific saved files. What could be wrong with those files? Is there any way to enable the page numbering macro in those files?
I use Word’s automated lists features a lot. Almost everything I write has at least one bulleted or numbered list. It’s an easy choice because most of the list defaults are adequate. However, you only have to create one long list to run into a perplexing problem — Word aligns list numbers to the left and typically, we align them to the right. You won’t notice it until a list hits double digits.
I have a large job for a client who uses antique computers. They are so old that he can’t run Lightroom. As a workaround, I posted the images I wanted him to look at on SmugMug and we had a disaster. Their sequencing on screen does not match my “as shot” sorting on my Lightroom (4). Is there a way I can print sequential serial numbers/ids on my images before I upload them to SmugMug so we are always talking about the same image?
I always used keyboard commands to quickly switch between windows in Corel Draw. It was always Ctrl-W then the window number. In 2017, there’s no more window number. I’ve been working this way for over 15 years! Why did Corel decide to take that functionality away from us?
I like your solution, but it only seems to half-solve the problem. At the start, you point out that the V1.0, V1.1, V2.0 system makes it unclear whether V1.1 is a minor revision of V1.0, or a draft for V2.0. This is exactly the problem I have with one of my documents where we have both types of change (it’s a weekly report file, so each week I have new data and a new major version number, but if I make any minor change to that week’s report, I want to keep it with the same main version number) and I’ve just been handed the V1.0 system to use.
Where “D” means Draft, and “F” means Final. And “V” tends to indicate “Version” to people so that even if they don’t know what the code means, they can guess it’s a version number. Bonus that D comes before F in the alphabet so it even saves all my drafts before my finals which is handy.
If you work in a business where you need to sequentially number items, you might be wondering if there is a way you can use Word to create the labels for you. Word has many ways you can implement some type of numbering in your documents. For instance, you can use different fields for numbering, or use numbered lists, the captioning feature, or you can use mail merging. While all of these features (and more) use some type of numbering in them, they are not all well suited to creating labels.

Checking the RTF spec, I could see that the \page directive shown above was the page break between two sections of my document where I wanted to reset the page numbering. To create the section break, I inserted the following RTF directives at that point:
@Tiho: What you want is called imposition. In general, it’s best to lay your document out as it reads (1 to 32) and then use file > print booklet, or export as PDF and then use an acrobat plug-in to impose the document to make it the way you want.
