Hello!

I have a document for which on printing-reasons I have to do a page-numbering like:
2
1
3
4
5
6
...
The page-number should be displayed in the header.

I would like to use only one page-style in the whole document, because sometimes users have to delete the first page, but the numbering should still be the same and deleting a page and set the page-styles newly would overstrain the users.

I tought perhaps I could use a function like you can do it hitting F2 in Writer, but I couldn't find a way to add the page-number to a formular there. Perhaps it can be done with fields somehow? It's just like: Display the page-number, but if you are no. 1 display 2 and if you are no. 2 display 1.

Is this possible somehow?

I'd simply type page numbers for pages 1 and 2 by hand [in reverse as needed here, and then let the rest be automatic.

David.

Thanks for your reply. As I said I want to have the page-numbers in the header, so changing the header by typeing something will change all headers on all pages.

One option that will require two page styles:

Compose the first two pages without headers, but put the header information at the top of each page manually.

The balance of the document could then have an otherwise identical style with page numbers in the headers.

Just an idea....

Thnaks for your reply. As I said the users sometimes have to delete some of the first pages, and I don't think I can teach them in a safe way to apply the page-styles again after they did that.

Okay, second approach:

Use a single page style with headers.

On the first two pages, create a frame positioned to cover the automatic header, and insert the same header text into the box, but with the page numbers changed.

HTH,
