Changing the appearance of page numbers

You can change the font size and style, which includes attributes, such as bold or italic, of page numbers.

In addition, you can also create custom page numbering formats. For example, you can add the name of a document or a chapter number to a page number. If you no longer need the custom format, you can delete it; however, you cannot delete the default page numbering formats provided with WordPerfect.
