1 outputs the page number. This is the default setting.

1 of n outputs the page number followed by 'of n', where 'n' is the total number of document pages.

1/n outputs the page number followed by a forward slash and 'n', where 'n' is the total number of document pages.

Page 1 outputs the text "Page" followed by the page number.

Page 1 of n outputs the text "Page" followed by the page number and 'of n', where 'n' is the total number of document pages.

Use the First Page Number text box to determine the first page number used.

Use the Number of Pages Increment text box to increase the total number of pages given as the output figure when the options above that involve 'n' are used.
