I have a legal document.
cover page - no page  number
contents, etc   i to ix
pages 1-10

THE problem is that after page 10, the page number starts over again.  

Is there an easy way to fix this?

You have more than one section in the document. Page numbering is done separately for each section,

Select a header or footer and navigate to the section where the numbering restarts. Choose 'Format Page Numbers...' where you will see the Option buttons to choose 'Continue from previous section' or 'Start at:'

I double clicked on bottom margin. Can you give me more detail on where to go?

Go to each page where the page renumbering starts - this is a new section!

NOW, do as GrahamSkan suggested...
