Description megalomoz 2004-09-02 14:15:50 UTC
As I often use OOo to write technical reports with many appendix, I'd really
like to be able to have a proper page numbering, e.g. to use something like
"number of page in the chapter" or "number of page in the section" instead of
"number of page in the whole document"

Thanks again for this wonderfull software

I think this also would be usefull when a document contains cover and index of
contents and the page number one is the next one, manual page break + start
conunting as 1. 

This way you could show at the botton of the pages "Page n of m" and the at the
last page n and m would mach. 

What happens now:
Manual break
Manual break, changing page number
Header:Page 1 of 4 (instead of 2)
First page
Manual break
Header:Page 2 of 4 (instead of 2)
Last page
Manual break

This would be a most useful feature.

I would like section page number as well.  There are times when both page number
and section page numbers would be handy.

There need to be a working offset option page count and/or a flag for pages to
make the not counted.

Personally I would like rename current page count system to document page count
and make normal page count flexible like page numbers.  There has to be a
document page number hiding back there as well.

Give them all to user and let user use what ever one suits there needs.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
