Hi Community,

 

I tried to set the 4th page as Page 1, but was unable to set as per instructions.

Please advise.

 

Thank you.

You need to follow the procedure in the see Start page numbering on Page 3 - double-sided printing link in the article for which you provided the URL.
That is, you need to insert a Section Break before page 4 and then access the Headers and Footers in the Section that starts on page 4, and unlink the Header or Footer as the case may be from that in the previous Section and then set the page numbering to start from 1 in that Section of the document.
If you already had page numbering in the document you will need to go to the Header\Footer in the first Section of the document and remove the page numbering from the Header\Footer in that Section.
