You are on Google Docs and can not put page numbers in your documents? In this quick tutorial we will show you how to do this in seconds on your computer, Android smartphone and iPhone!

In a relatively short time Google Docs has emerged as an entirely viable alternative to Microsoft Word,

with even several advantages over it, especially the fact that it is free, collaborative work and the possibility of using Docs on any computer connected to the internet, without installing anything.

However, even if Google Docs is very rich in features it is not exactly arranged as the text editor on which you made your weapons.

In this quick tutorial we are interested in the automatic numbering of pages – a feature as popular as it is indispensable. And you’ll see, there’s nothing really good about knowing where to look!

Google Docs: Add Automatic Page Numbers From Your PC

For that :

  • Open your PC browser and go to Google Docs
  • Open the document you want to edit in Google Docs
  • Click Insert => Header and Page Number

Go to Page Number to choose the location of your numbering: choose (a) to display the numbering from the first page at the top right, or (b) to start the numbering from the second page to the same location.

Choose (c) to display the numbering from the first page at the bottom right, or (d) to start the numbering from the second page to the same location. You can then add the total number of pages according to the format that suits you

  • Click on the page number in the header or footer depending on what you have chosen
  • After the number, insert a separator (- / \ | “on n pages”) at your convenience and leave the pointer where you want to insert the total number of pages
  • Click Insert => Header and Page Number
  • Go to Number of pages

The total number of pages is immediately added to where you left the pointer.

Add The Page Number in Google Docs On Android And iPhone

For that:

  • Open the Google Docs app
  • Open a document
  • Tap the +  to insert
  • Choose Page Number
  • Then choose the layout as on PC (cf capture above)

Once the page number has been inserted:

  • After the number, insert a separator (- / \ | “on n pages”) at your convenience and leave the pointer where you want to insert the total number of pages
  • Tap the +  to insert
  • Choose Number of pages

In particular, the Android / iPhone method can save your life if you urgently print a (numbered) document you need to return. Did you find this tutorial useful? Share your feedback in the comments.
