Subject Re: Page numbers in PDF
Date Thu, 08 May 2003 16:04:00 GMT

In all of the PDF documents I've seen (mostly electronic manuals for
programs for Adobe and others) I've always seen the number of pages work
the way you describe (all pages counted together & requiring an offset).
In fact, the window at the bottom of Acrobat shows the page number
you're on out of the total. I've never seen otherwise, and would dearly
love to be shown I'm wrong. Can you provide a URL to a PDF file that has
this otherwise (an attachment might be a faux pas ;-p)?

I just went through every PDF I have (including the ones from Adobe) and
they all count the number of pages inclusively. There are no separate
numbering systems when I do a Ctrl+N.
