Header says it all! I have read and tried many combinations at Insert > Fields > Other > variable without success, so can the instructions be very explicit. Thanks for your help.

Regards

gkellock,

After you have inserted a page number field in your document, double click on it to display the formatting window. At the bottom, in the text box Offset, enter the number of pages you want to offset.

Edited: you should double-click just before the page number, it gives better result. Or use the menu option Edit > Fields.

I don't like it but I've to strongly disapprove this method. Offset must be avoided and has a very particular goal.

See this thread instead : Page numbers.

NB: Don't forget to search the forum before posting, there are plenty of threads about that.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' in your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
