Changing starting page number

Post by writerhoward » 2019-08-11 18:12:39

How can I change the starting page's number? I want it to start with a number greater than one.

G’day, writerhoward et al

In the Section Palette, go to the Page Numbering bit and change the number in the “Restart At” field, then hit Return.

This seems to work even though “Restart At” and the checkbox are greyed out.

That field would probably be better named “Start At” because it’s clear from the Palette name that settings here relate to the Section containing the insertion point, rather than to the document as a whole.

Cheers,

Thanks Adrian.

I agree with "That field would probably be better named “Start At.”

It is also confusing that you can change it despite the fact that "Restart at" is grayed out.

This question has come up before, so it's something we'll probably improve in the future. I'm sorry for the confusion, but thanks to Adrian for explaining the situation.
