page numbering and section breaks in uploading multiple pdfs
From perusing your site, I gather it is better upload pdf files with the fonts embedded for a print book. I have really battled with the page numbering for different sections in my original word doc. I have followed all the advice concerning section breaks etc but when I come to trying to insert page numbers 1,2,3 into the pages after Contents page, Word only inserts number 1 on the first page and the rest have no numbers, just a pilcrow sign when I check with pilcrow. I have bald patches from dealing with this so have decided to follow advice and cut up my doc into two files for upload; front section and main section of text.
My question is this, I know I have to have section breaks after every page in the front section or Lulu will start numbering them 1,2,3 as well when making a composite file. Does the last page of my front pages file have to be a blank (left hand) page or do I make the first page of my main section a blank page with a section break before the contents page? I am concerned that when the two files are added together by Lulu, I will have an extra blank page. Hope I have explained clearly...
