So I have a word document I am writing in Microsoft Word 2011. What I want to do with it, is have page numbering start from the middle of the document. Is this possible? If so, how do you do it?

Please reply soon, Adiman423

I didn't quite get what you meant by this. Do you mean the numbers that are at the end of a page to count on which page you are? And did you mean "from the middle of the document" by inserting page numbers from a specific point? Thanks.

Maybe by changing the size of a page to half pages then printing two pages on one page?

no, I mean by section breaks.

It used to be easy to manipulate section breaks in Word and change page number behaviors, but in recent versions they messed with the interface so half the time it doesn't work the way you expect.

In theory, you should be able to change page numbering using section breaks. God knows how it "works" because I have difficulty doing it. And one reason to do this would be say, if you were doing a title page that wasn't numbered, and wanted the numbers to begin on the second page.
