Is there anyway to get writer to put page numbering at the bottom right of a page that is only half full.
I don't what to got back to MS/Word to do this but MS/Word works without a hassel to do this.
If you haven't already tried this, it should help. It works here.
When you start writer, cursor in first page, select insert>footer, choose default.
Then with cursor in the footer, select insert>fields>page count, then choose align right.
Hopefully, if I understand your question correctly, that should solve the problem.
