I am trying to start numbering the pages around page 4. I've tried everything I can think of and have searched the forums endlessly with no answer that works.
I'll give as much info about the document as I can.
Set up as facing pages.
Page 1 is single front cover.
Page 2 is blank.
Page 3 is Table of Contents. (Pages 2 and 3 are in a spread, as are the rest of the pages except for the last page which is single, back cover)
Page 4 is where I want it to say Page 1.
I tried going into Numbering and Section Options. Everything I try does nothing.
When I tried double clicking on Page 4 to select it > then choosing numbering and section options > choosing start section > then choosing Start page numbering at: > putting in 1 > and it turned into a single page while the rest of the pages that followed remained doubled up.
It did change to page 1, but it doesn't help me much as it turns into a single page.
I tried taking facing pages off and doing it, but that doesn't work out either.
Any help would be much appreciated. I've been trying to figure this out for probably about 5 hours now. Thanks in advance.
InDesign follows convention that odd numbers go on right-hand pages in countries that read from left to right. It's pretty disconcerting to a reader when you violate that convention, but you can do it following Daniel's directions.
Thank you for the help. Much appreciated.
