I have feeling I'm not seeing the forest for the trees here...
I have a novel with pages numbered 1 - 320. I wish to insert two pages at the start - a title page and a page with a map - that are not numbered.
I tried inserting a section break and removing the page number. However, Word did not create a full blank page at the beginning if the document. In addition, I could not get the page number to vanish for the first section (even after removing), and forget how to start the numbering on the third physical page with page 1. I've checked support.office.com, but to no avail.
Does anyone have step-by-step instructions that would be useful?
