PDF Export CS6 InDesign

Aug 27, 2013 1:51 PM

Since we started exporting PDFs from InDesign CS6, the page information line (at bottom of PDF page) shows only arabic numerals. Our i, ii, iii or a, b, c section numbering appears as 1, 2, 3 . . .  How do you correct this, if possible?

    Do you have view section numbering enabled in the prefs?

    Do the numbers repeat, or are they the abosolute numbers? To be honest, I don't think I ever looked at the page numbers in the page info section on a file that used multiple sections.

    In Preview mode, do you see both numbers sections?

    Preview mode will show you just as it says, a preview of what you'll see in the PDF. That's why I was asking you if you saw the correct numbering in preview mode. Do you? Maybe some screenshots will be helpful at this time. Your page panel showing your master pages and regular pages.

    ELLIS: no, he is talking about the Page Information (a pdf option) OUTSIDE the trimbox, nothing you can see in the masters, pages or similar.

     

    RANDALL: maybe you can "fake" the info in the master pages outside page margins and deactivate the checkbox when exporting to PDF

    Thanks for clarification. I have never used that feature. But doing a quick test just confirms what the OP described.

    Maybe add a slug area soemplace the printer marks won't interfer and add a current page marker. You probably may need to have the containing frame touch the page.
