Hi Simcha,

Yes, it's possible to define a PageLabels with the 'pdfmark' operator.

See the examples below, using the /PUT key and the PageLabels
dictionary definitions to include it in the 'Catalog' dictionary:

% Example A

[{Catalog} << /PageLabels
<< % PageLabel dictionary
/Nums [
0 <> % Page 1 starts with lower-casse Roman numbers
4 <> % Page 5 starts with decimal numbers
7 <> % Page 8 starts with the prefix
>> /PUT pdfmark

% Example B

[{Catalog} << /PageLabels
<< % PageLabel dictionary
/Nums [
0 << /Type /PageLabel
/S /a % Lower-case alphabetic numbering system at all pages
/P (Marc Antoni # ) % With my name prefix ...

>> /PUT pdfmark

I hope this help you,

Marc Antoni Malagarriga
