Page breaks and numbers don't seem to work

Hello,



  As a newcomer to Mathematica, I am unable to figure out how to do
something very simple - have the page numbers display correctly (on the
lower left of a page), and have the pages print out with pagebreaks at the
same locations indicated by the page tick-marks in the on-screen notebook. I
have tried every conceivable thing to get this to work. This must be a very
elementary thing to accomplish, wouldn't you all agree?

    I'm dealing with a pure text-Syle notebook using Mathematica 5.0.



1) When I scroll down the document slowly, the page numbers are displayed in
the lower left of the window. The complete sequence of page numbers, for me,
is:



2,  5, 6, 10



The page tick-marks are nicely displayed on the RH side. I don't have any
confidence that if I printed out this document, the page breaks would match
the tick marks, but which is what I would like to have happen, so I can tell
beforehand where the page breaks will occur.



Similarly screwed up seems to be the process of writing out a Postscript
file. It invariably misses lots of the text and math entries, after paying
due attention to all the cute font-inclusion tricks, yes, I know ALL about
that, but to no avail.



Thanks very much for any help,



Daria Boeninger
