Date dialog English American

I discovered the solution before posting but I will post to help others. Atlantis often has an exe error and freezes so I have to close and reopen. I can live with that but I lose a few preferences. One is my Insert date format. This time I cannot reset it. I am stuck with American style M/d/yy I ha...

Large space last third of page

I frequently have a problem with pages forced into large blank areas at the bottom, as much as a third of the page. I use footnotes a lot, up to 10 on a page. The large blanks are forced when I have a lot of footnotes. It happens even when the next paragraph is small and could easily fit in the spac...

yes thank you I want to paste from the Character Map but I cannot find the £ pound sign when I searched. I looked under Georgia and Times - I would prefer not to search every font to find it.

£ sign missing

My small keyboard doesn't have a £ sign. I use copy paste but it's laborious.
Ihave n numberrs on the side so the workaround shown on most sites doesn't work for me.
Surely the £ sign is somewhere under Insert? I cannot find it.

Small extra - I just tried using page numbering. The format is set to highlight the page number in grey so it is hard to see the number. When I tried

I imagine the footnote is easier as although its number changes that is in effect a label. The footnote must have a database entry ...
