Microsoft Word is FRUSTTRATING ME

Okay, I know there's an easy way to suppress page numbers on page one (start on page 2), but I can't figure it out. When I set it to "start on page two" it sets page 1 AS page 2 and "starts" there.


I think my "final" version of the novel is on my jump drive. Yes, I'm entering another contest. Why the hell not? I can't get any AGENTS to like it...

Enough of the feeling sorry for myself.

Quick weekly television rundown:
I'm glad I stuck with Moonlight. Looking forward to the finale next week.
Lost is delightful and filled with OMG WTF mystery.
Doctor Who was a good concept that sort of fell flat.
Ugly Betty remains good, but I'm saddened by the current turn of events.
I MISSED THE SCRUBS FINALE!!!!! I have to check iTunes and see when it's available for download. On the other hand, hooray, ABC picked it up for an eighth season. I be happy. Of course, they'll probably put it on Monday night.

Today is the eleventh. I have to figure out Word's peccadilloes by the 15th to enter this contest. On the other hand, since they want entries in .rtf format, maybe I can work on these things in WordPerfect, which would make me very happy...

I can fix that for you. No prob. It's easier to show you than to tell you how to do it, tho'.

I know I've done it before; the finished manuscript says so. *g*

Deadline is the 15th; I wish I'd heard about this sooner! It's specifically a romance contest, with subcategories for paranormal, so... why not?

I recall fixing it the last time, too. It's not hard, but if you don't set it up from the start, you may have to play a bit to keep your existing headers and footers. If you don't do it often, it's easy to forget.

MS Word
Depending, I suspect, on which version of Word you have. In mine you click on the Insert menu, then the Page Numbers option. In the little window that opens up, there's a checkbox in the bottom left that says Show Number on First Page. Un-checking the box will "hide" the page number on Page 1.

Good luck. With the program and the contest.

Re: MS Word
I'll check that, THANKS!

By now you must know that Moonlight wasn't renewed. Grrr. Good luck with the contest, though. That's a happier thing to think about.

Yes, heard that yesterday. Stupid CBS. First Jericho, now Moonlight. Way to keep the viewers interested. I guess if it doesn't pull CSI numbers, it's not worth keeping. (What else is new?) Barb saw on one of her lists last night that there's a REMOTE possibility that the new CW revamp might pick it up, though. If they actually renew Reaper, I'll believe that.

Thanks!!! And yes, Word once again screwed up those page numbers on my initial submissions (shouldn't an .rtf file stay the same, WordPerfect to Word? NOOOO....), but hey, these folks are AWESOME - the woman handling the Paranormal section wrote me back and let me re-submit. How cool is that? So I got it all fixed and submitted and now fingers are crossed. I'm almost tempted to join their group, even if I don't live in Denver. They have nice folks on board.
