Description emforner 2011-02-03 12:38:55 UTC
I set up a Writer document template which includes page numbering fields (both
page number e total pages number), to show in each page the number of the
current page and the total number of pages in the document (e.g.: “page 1 of
12”); no problem occurs when I print the document as a single print (or multiple
copies of the same print).
But I need to do a mail merge printing, because I want that every single print
got a different “stamp” on the first page of the printed document (e.g.:
“Original”, “Copy”, etc.).
So, when I do the mail merge printing, it happens that the page number in every
page is the same of the total number of pages in the document (e.g.: “page 12 of
12” shows in each page, instead of “page 1 of 12”, “page 2 of 12”, etc.).
The issue occurs with the Linux (Debian) build of 3.3 (italian
localization) (I have not yet tried to reproduce the issue in Windows too).

@OS: The page numbers are placed within a frame. All pages will be numbered as 
<LastPage> of <LastPage> like 5|5

But it doesn't occur when you insert a footer with the page numbers.
