Automatic page numbering—start count from page 3

Previous topic - Next topic


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)


I think what you are looking for is in File/Document Setup/Sections.Check the the srcibus help for more details
