I would like to create a document with automatic page numbering that also shows the total number of pages. While I can see how to add an automatic page number to a document, I have not found a way to add something like " Page 1 of 7"...

Am I missing something or does this feature not exist? It it does not exist, would it be possible to add it?

I have been told I am wrong on this

In the 'View' menu check that 'Studio' > 'Fields' is checked so the Fields studio is showing. You can insert any "Field" into your text by double clicking on the label, so to get what you wanted

  1. Type "Page "
  2. on the Fields Studio scroll to the Document section and Double Click the label "Page Number" (mouse over the words "Page Number" not the <Page Numbers> text)
  3. then type "of " and
  4. then Double Click the label "Page Count" (mouse over the words "Page Count" not the <Section Page Count> text)

You will end up with "Page 1 of N"

This is confusing. If you're stumped see the easy way to do this at https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/286544585/

That video only shows you how to insert the current page number, not the page count.

Hello - is there a possibility to edit the page numbers, so it's starts with Number one on the 3rd page?

Thank you very much!

Jost

You should use the "Section Manager" on Pages tab.2068275544_ScreenShot2018-11-13at12_20_55.png.8bbeb1693e47b0a334c3f920a6adddf8.png

Hi, does any one knows if there is a possibility to delete an vertical line that appears before the page number? I tried to do it, but it wasn't possibile to remove nor to change the colour of it.

I've never seen a vertical line like that. Can you show us a screenshot, and possibly include a sample .afpub file that shows it?

the points 3 and 4 are the good it works but even without this, I would be very happy about an answer

It looks like that:

I thougt is some kind of numbering style, but no.

It looks like some sort of Text Decoration from a Paragraph Style.
