Default Page Numbering in InDesign???

Gotta page numbering question, I'll apologize up front since it's probably relatively easy, but I don't do numbering often.

I have a 60 page booklet and would like to start page numbering at page 3 (would print as page 1) and end at page 58 (would print as page 56). I don't want the cover, inside cover, inside back and back cover to be numbered. I think I under stand how to start the numbering by defining a section and starting number, but how do I get it to stop numbering at a defined page?

Thanks!

One way would be to add a new master page or pages without page numbers and assign those to your back pages.

Craig

Talk to your printer and see what he/she is expecting. Often the cover of a booklet will be printed separately (four colours, perhaps) and the printere will want the pasges used in it in a separate 4 page file.

If this is the case, you would just make a 56 page Quark file for the insides, and start numbering at 3. (Although it is permssibile to number a booklet with 1 as the first inside page, and ignore the covers entirely for numbering.)

Doh!

And therein lies the biggest problem that Adobe faces in its attempts to conquer Quark. The term has become nearly generic, like Aspirin or Coke. I wonder how many print employees specify they want somthing in a Quark file when a ID file would do just fine.

Will give the master page a try.

donmcc... I am the printer as well, we are going to run this digitally since it is a short run, and the printer will saddle stitch on its own.
Thanks

Craig,

I'm a bit late in to this, but can't you simply delete the page number frames on the cover pages?

Best wishes, Adrian

If the page numbering is being done using master pages, so that page numbering is occurring automatically, then you cannot delete the page number on the page.

Craig

You can define page 3 to be the start of page numbering by firstly being on page 3, then going to the Layout > Numbering & Section Options menu or by choosing Numbering & Section Options in the Pages palette and choosing 'Start page numbering at' and typing in '1'. However, to stop the page numbering at page 58 and have the last two pages without numbers, you would need to have a second master page - without any auto page numbering - and apply that to the last two pages in the layout. .

Eggles,

I beg to differ! And I've just checked! Even if you have automatic page numbering based on a master page, you can still select the frame on a document page and delete either the contents or even the frame itself.

Best wishes, Adrian

But if you do this to say, pages 1 and 2, then wouldn't the number that appears on page 3 (which Craig wanted to be labelled '1') be labelled '3'?
