Can I start page numbering later in the document?

Not yet. You can quickly add page numbers to your document in Word Online, and you can hide the number on the first page, but to start page numbering later in your document, open the document in the desktop version of Word.

Then, follow the instructions in Start page numbering later in your document. (For Word for Mac, see Start page numbering later in your document in Word 2016 for Mac.)

When you’re done and you've saved the document, you’ll see the changes when you reopen it in Word Online.

If you don’t have the desktop version of Word, you can try it or buy it now in the latest version of Office.

For more information about page numbering in Word Online, see Add page numbers and Add page numbers to headers or footers.

Tip: Word Online works seamlessly with Word and other Office desktop programs, and we update it based on input like yours. For the latest feature announcements, visit the Office Online blog.
