The previous version might have seemed primitive for users and the functions were not up to par with expectations and requirements for our users with the feedback we had received. Below you will see how different the latest version of this tool will look.

A cornerstone feature from the old version was to let users select the position of where the page number would be applied to - We have kept this for the ease-of-use but added a tremendous amount to the layout. There will be a description of what each function does below:

Top 3 Potential Users of Add Page Numbers

1. Writers

Let’s face it. No one writes on paper anymore unless you’re on a deserted island and need to send it by bottle across the ocean. People write their dissertation, books, novels or essays on a laptop or desktop. Physical books have page numbers which allows users to find the bookmarked page, but also to direct anyone reading the same book to the relevant page - Like in a school. Making citations in a paper and referring to a page number is necessary for a third party to follow. This is why there’s an absolute relevancy to having page numbers added to your work or even your PDF file.

2. Business Institutions

Businesses need page numbers for their agreements, proposals or presentations. In order to keep an organized structure and the ease of being able to find the relevant information, adding page numbers to any of the aforementioned documents is a necessity.

3. Teachers and Students

The education system has slowly progressed from going to everything hand-written to digital. Digital includes the use of computers frequently in classes and learning. Teachers are sending study materials to students in digital format and students in return submit their assignments and homework online to teachers. As a standard format in the educational system, teachers will require their students to mark their work with page numbers.
