That's not what I get. I can type 27 into the Go to Page ?? field, and it goes to the page that's numbered as 27, rather than the 27th page of the PDF, which would be 7 in your case. If I want to go to the 7th page, I have to type in VII.
What versions are you using?
Are you exporting to PDF or printing to PostScript and distilling? What PDF settings are you using?
Thanks for your attention. I'm using InDesign 5.5 and Acrobat X, operating on Windows 7. In this scenario, I just created the PDF (print quality) straight out of InDesign -- that's what I usually do for in-office use (and then I use printer-specific settings when I produce the final files).
I know what you mean about entering "vii" to get to the 7th page of the PDF; unfortunately right now it's that I have to enter "xxi" to get to what should be numbered "1". The pages/chapters are numbered correctly when I look in my InDesign book panel, but it's just that chapter 1 comes out with unwanted roman numerals when I open it in Acrobat. It also doesn't happen with every book of mine, which only adds to the confusion:)
Any advice you have would be awesome. Thanks!
Maybe the InDesign document has some minor corruption. Try exporting it as IDML and opening the IDML back in InDesign. If it doesn't output correctly, it obviously wasn't the solution, so there will be no need to keep the new document. If it does work, you can save it and keep using it, but you might want to keep the original for a while, just in case.
