OK, I found it myself:1. Tools - Pages - Edit Page Design - Header & Footer - Add Header & Footer.2. Select the font and size, etc, place the cursor on the appropriate site to insert the page number, click the "Insert Page Number" button, and click OK.That is!

Not quite. I tried this myself and althiough you can insert the page number the footer does not increment even when you use the insert page number macro offered. What am I missing?

The problem is that although I can insert a page number in the footer, the page number doesn't increment. Unlike in Word, for exmple where you can decide where to start numbering and each new page is initial page number + 1 all I get is the number I entered on every page.

Yes, you can effortlessly add page numbers in PDF document and insert numbers in PDF files with the help of PDF Bates Numbering tool. This application is more beneficial for forensic experts and professionals.
