Automatic page numbering—start count from page 3
« on: November 03, 2022, 03:58:55 pm »
I'm using the double-sided page option to layout a 20 page document.
I'm using master pages as follows:
front cover right
front cover rear left
normal left—includes auto number function
normal right—includes auto number function
The auto numbering assigns page 1 to 'front cover right'.
I want to start numbering from page 3 of the document ie page 3 is marked '1'.
Can this be done in Scribus?

I wonder if you can add 3 unprintable blank pages ahead of your start page 3 (just guessing as I have no idea of the answer)
