-In many books, ​page numbering does not matterMost books sold in EPUB format, especially fiction, ​do not have specific pagination (they are "​reflowable"​) ​and so will show as a different number of pages depending on the amount of text that fits on device’s screen. Some accessible format producersincluding NNELS, will remove page numbers from the table of contents to not confuse a user in these cases. Some texts are for academic study, in which case, page numbers matter so that the reader can properly reference or cite the material.+=====No ​page numbers=====

 LibreOffice and OpenOffice can handle basic page numbering, but unfortunately do not handle changes in page numbering like Word does because it does not have the section break option. If matching page numbers is important, you must use Microsoft Word. LibreOffice and OpenOffice can handle basic page numbering, but unfortunately do not handle changes in page numbering like Word does because it does not have the section break option.
