Headers and footers, and page numbers – OH MY!!!

I WILL MASTER HEADERS AND PAGE NUMBERS TODAY IF IT TAKES ALL DAY!!!!!!!

OK… after that lil’tantrum, I feel much better!

Oh, and don’t tell me how easy it is – IT’S NOT AS EASY AS YOU THINK – I want the author name on the LEFT side pages and the title on the RIGHT…

BUT!!!!!!!!!!

I do not want either to appear on the CHAPTER PAGES… so far it’s all or nothing, but I WILL NOT allow this THING to beat me! NOT GONNA HAPPEN! There is a way around it – my GPS (Get Page Solvers) – just hasn’t figured it out yet.

And the page numbers… I want 1 – 300 to BEGIN on the Chapter One page and I find that isn’t happening either…

I WILL BE A CONQURER… you’ll see…

Yesterday was AWESOME! I have a design for the cover – and NO, I’m not sharing it until the book is ready to go. Still some tweaking, but I love it. It is absolutely not what I THINK I expected. I say “I THINK” because I had no vision what I wanted – no REAL EXPECTATIONS. I know my book is NOT the kind for one of those covers where Andy looks like Fabio, or Bethy appears as a woman showing off her assets – NOT WHAT I WANTED, but I didn’t know what I DID want. I hope you will be, as I told Jeff, the designer, PLEASANTLY SURPRISED!! The more and more I look at it – because I can’t STOP looking at it – the more I LOVE IT!

Now he’s working on the back cover and I am fixing efvbjinhbgfvdcx headers and page numbers!

OK… must get to work because the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter!

Love, Barbara

    To get the page numbers to start where the chapters start, you have to begin a new section at the very top of chapter 1. Then begin page numbers with “1”‘ go to page 2 and insert page numbers beginning with “2”.

      I might have to call you when I get through the rest of the changes. Thought I was DONE, but to get the cv#gy^7uy*hn header thing to work I had to manipulate and it got all jacked up… I’m almost done….
