PAGE NUMBERS and TYPING in COLUMNS
As I am typing(cutting and pasting actually) on the Lulu template provided, I began on the R side. This is the 1st page with text. As per the videos, the odd pages are on the R, however my first page with text which is on the R is numbered 2. How do I fix before uploading?
In addition, this is a book of poetry and I have chosen to print some poems in 2 colums on a page. The columns change the page numbers. The pages will read 7, 8, 2,3. The 2 and 3 are where the columns are and I already have pages 2 and 3. All suggestions are welcomed.
