You probably tried to install the windows edition of the office suite onto your mac. They actually make a different version of the office suite just for macs.
Single space 12 pt: two typed to one printed. Double space 12 pt: one typed to one printed. In general. Just so you know, publishers and editors think in word count, not page numbers. When they get a manuscript, they take the word count, and, by knowing the number of words per page for the different layouts they have available (hardcover, large soft cover, supermarket paperback) they figure how many pages the final book will be. Doing this will average out pages with lots of dialog and therefore lots of white space. The shortest novels you'll see on the shelf are about 40,000 words, or just over 150 pages. This is for the Young Adult market. Adult books are usually 60,000 to 100,000, but of course some are very much longer (but usually not over 200,000 words - about the size of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows). More info than you need at this point, but the more you know about how publishing works the better off you'll be. Have fun writing!
It is the equivalent of word. It took me a while to get to where I could go from mac to pc without confusion.
Try this: 1. Click at the top of the first page you want numbered. 2. Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon. 3. Click the Breaks icon in the Page Setup group. 4. Insert a Next Page type section break. 5. Click on the Insert tab on the Ribbon. 6. Click the Header icon and select Edit Header. 7. Deselect Link To Previous in the Design tab that appeared on the Ribbon. 8. Go back to the Insert tab and repeat Steps 5 to 7 for the Footer. 9. If there's a page number in the header or footer for the first section, delete it. 10. Go into the second section. 11. On the Design tab again, click the Page Number icon 12. Click Format Page Numbers. 13. If you want the first section’s page numbers to count but not show, click Continuous. 14. Or, if you want the page numbering to start at one, click Start At. A 1 should show up in the list box adjacent to it. 15. Click OK. 16. Click OK to actually insert the page number. That should do it. What you now have is two sections. Both sections have headers and footers, but the page number will appear only in the second section. Hope that helps.
