Topic: How to start Foot page number on page other than 1
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 126091

I know how to add page numbers to an Acrobat document using the Footer option. But how can I tell these added page numbers to begin on a page other than 1. I tried renumbering the pages in the Pages panel using the drop down menu, but that doesn't change the Footer page number. The page number in the Page panel changes, but the Footer number still display page 1.

I often get PDFs that are exhibits to a document and I need them to be numbered with a starting number other than 1. My workaround right now is to insert the proper number of blank pages so that when the Footer page number reaches the pages I want to number, they are at the correct number. Then I delete the blank pages. But this seems like a less than perfect workaround.

Thanks in advance for any help.
