The Problem with Pagination in a Google Document

After watching student after student print their research papers, it was brought to my attention that the pages numbers were being cut off. I checked the default page setup and it was one inch all around, but when inserting a page number, it was placed too close to the top of the page. Pagination (putting numbers on the pages) should not be that hard. Here's a quick overview of how to get around the problem. I hope Google is listening......

Adding page numbers are as easy as insert > page number > top of the page

Notice how the page the number is very close to the top 

Type your last name and then a space.
Click to the left of your name and hit return. (enter)
You have now moved the page number and your name down a space.
The page will now print correctly.

DK Find Out! The Visual Encyclopedia

Young students, ESL and special education students will find this new visual encyclopedia very useful. The interface is user-friendly and the current information is easy to follow.

There is a section for quizzes and videos, fun facts and galleries, but at this time the information is very limited. I'm interested in seeing how DK expands the encyclopedia to cover many more areas of study, especially the history section, which covers only nine areas. DK Find Out! is a site to watch.....
