Feature Request: Fields for Total Pages and Time Values

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I see there are fields (or "placeholders" as I call them ;) ) for "Page Number", "Next…" and "Previous Frame Page Number", but there's no field for a self-updating "Total Number of Pages", so one easily could add something like "Page 1 of 10", "Page 2 of 10", and so on, to the document.

Also it would be nice to have some fields for time values (current date: day, month, year, current time: hour, minutes, seconds... with or w/o leading zeros). Those could update on save or export.

There are only a limited set of Fields available via Text > Insert > Field, but there are more available via the Fields panel (View > Studio > Fields), including the total number of pages and date or time.

Oh... that's cool. Everything is there already. :-)  One just has to know. Thanks for the information!
