How do I add page numbering to an Adobe Acrobat X file?

I have a 39 page file (Adobe Acrobat X) in which I want to insert page numbering at the bottom - nothing elaborate, just simple numbering. How do I do this?

Hi Diane,

You can add page numbers by going to the Tools pane, Pages panel, under Edit Page Design select "Header and Footer" then in the pulldown select Add Header or Footer. In the dialog for that you can click the button ( middle of dialog) Insert Page Number and fill that out as you want it. You'll also want to click on the Page Number and Date Format link ( left side middle of that dialog) to set up the page numbering option there.

Hope this helps,

Here is a short tutorial that explains how to do this as well using Acrobat X Std. or Pro.
