Is there such a thing as numbering pages in a Word document with 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, etc. Reason -- Instructor's directions on left side and student's manual on right side. In other words, I would like to have the instructor's directions correspond with each page of the student's manual.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks for any help!

I explored Word 2000 and couldn't come up with a solution for you. It seems to me that, if you have your book organized so that the instructor's notes are on the LEFT page and the student's instructions are on the RIGHT page, the page numbers shouldn't matter. What am I missing here?

Maybe someone else will be able to find you a solution.
:confused:

I understand what you mean. The reason we would want it that way is so the instructor can refer the student to the page they would need to be on yet the instructor needs their notes on the left side of the student's page. The alternative would be to just have the student's pages on the right side to be numbered. Can that be done? Thus leaving the instructor's notes pages unnumbered.

Thanks for your help!

I looked for that option while I was messing with it, but couldn't find a way to skip pages in the numbering. But look at it this way: If you start numbering from the first page, and assuming that the EVEN numbers are on the LEFT (instructor's side) and th ODD numbers are on the RIGHT (student's side), then it should be easy enough for the instructor to tell the student which page to use. I.e., the instructor is on page 22 and the student would HAVE to be on page 23. Does that work for you?

assuming that the students do NOT also have the instructors directions
- why not create them as 2 documents and collate the instructors directions pages into the instructor version

ie
students get student manual
instructors get instructor directions plus student manual collated

(i'd put the page numbering on the left side of the instructor's directions pages so when it's open they can see the page numbers on the external corners rather than the internal ones - but that's just me ;))

otherwise you'd have to do a LOT of fooling around with section breaks and numbering etc - probably not worth it
