I need to include the number of pages in EACH section):

Example (like ChrisChambers, in another thread
http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=30714&sid=b4261790564fdcde539f810caf2529ad):

Lets say Chapter 1 has 3 pages and Chapter 2 has 4 and Chapter 3 has 2 the numbering would go;

1-1/3, 1-2/3, 1-3/3, 2-1/4, 2-2/4, 2-3/4, 2-4/4, 3-1/2, 3-2/2

Using a Master Document, I can get the TOTAL number of pages (9) but I can't find a way to insert the number of pages in EACH section.

How can I do it ?[/b]

No replies generally means no one knows how to do it. I don't think it can be done automatically.

OK. I assume that this is not possible.

I don't really want to use Master Documents. I only use them because this is the only way I managed to get page numbers restarting in each chapter.

Is it possible to achive the result I need in a simple document, using sections (like in Word) ?

Page numbers in each section:

1-1/3, 1-2/3, 1-3/3, 2-1/4, 2-2/4, 2-3/4, 2-4/4, 3-1/2, 3-2/2

This is the second time I see Master Documents referred to today. Can someone provide or point me to a brief description of what they are and what they're used for?

Thanks.

If you write long documents, you can write each chapter as separate file.

example of use: the master document allows you to assemble several chapters and to include a common Table of contents

Not to my knowledge. It appears to be something you need to leave until the end and then just type in.

A posibility for a macro.
