Page numbering

Page numbering helps you to number all headings on a page. It’s the easiest and least obtrusive way to number your headings.

Using page numbering

Page numbering can be toggled on / off from the Confluence editor toolbar. When you're editing a Confluence page, you will find the Numbered Headings button next to the heading selector.

The Numbered Headings toolbar button

When you click on the button, all headings on the page will be numbered.

Configuration

If you don't want to use the default numbering format, you can change the configuration of the numbering. You can do so by opening the numbering configuration from the toolbar.

We discourage combining macro numbering and page numbering.
