What software are you printing from.

what software? any software....any time I print anything, there is no option to print page numbers....

This is the completely useless reply that I received from Canon customer support:


The page number settings will be within the program that you are using to print your documents on the Mac operating system.  For example, if you are using Word for Mac, information on how to add a page number will be in the help guide for the Word program.

Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

Thank you for choosing Canon.

I find it surprising that there is not an option to include page numbers on printed documents. There are many things I would like to print other than a Word document.

Well, that's not true. Microsoft Word and Excel allow page numbers. Some photo printing applications allow printing numbers. Printing website pages have page numbers. Exactly what are you printing?

You're right. Mostly I print web pages that I want to refer to, or emails. I use Gmail, and Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Evernote.


I just thought there would be a setting in the Canon printer app that would enable page numbers on all print-outs.


Thanks for any help!
