Topic: Acrobat 6.0 page numbers in footer

I'm posting this to the developer area in hopes that there exists some Javascript that can help here...

I'm trying to customize my page numbers for a footer in Acrobat 6.0. I understand that to "re-number" my pages, I remove the current footer and then add it back.

However, does anyone have an idea on how I can tell the page number to match the "thumbnail number"? Through the "Renumber pages" command I've created sections within my thumbnails, so that one section uses lower case Roman numerals, then restarts with Arabic numerals (and a new page 1).

The re-numbering works great for navigation. Now I just need the footer to match the thumbnail number!!

I've played around with basic Javascript but haven't yet found something that can identify this particular detail of a page.

Does anyone know if it's even possible?
