3.  Select the position you want to place the page numbers from the drop-down menu.  (Bottom of page is usually what you want to select.)

4.  From the Alignment drop-down menu, select where you want the page numbers to appear on the page (left, center, right).

5.  If you want to have a page number shown on the first page, check the "Show number on first page" check box.  (Sometimes you don't want a page number displayed on the first page as it is sometimes the title page.)
