Description osavill 2006-11-07 14:42:20 UTC
While editing a document I noticed that the page count field in the footer was 
showing one more page than the document actually had in it. I had done a manual 
break and started a new page style so the page numbering would start at 1 after 
the cover sheet. 

I noticed that it said, for example, 2 of 14, when I actually hoped for 2 of 13 
since there were thirteen pages after the cover sheet was taken out. After 
reviewing the various formatting options I gave up with this idea since it 
appears to not be simple !

I carried on and then noticed that it now said, for example, 2 of 15 when there 
were still only 14 pages. I did a manual check and there really were only 14 
pages. I tried Tool --> Update --> Update All and Fields but still it says 15. 
Even the document properties are telling me there are 15 pages !

Anyway, I cut the document down to 4 pages and it's still showing 5. I'll 
attach it.

Page break from page one to a new page one (odd to odd page number) will create
an empty page in between. See issue 3910 for further information. Also notice
the page number syntax in the status bar.
