Section Numbering change to Absolute Numbers (or vice versa depending on what you want)
You can also use Absolute Page numbers as ranges by inserting +1 it print the absolute first page of the document.
The only way I can think of to have both at the same time would be to use section numbers for display, and add an empty text frame on the master with a blank paragraph set up as a numbered list, which I think will update automaticaly as you move or add pages to match the absolute page number.
Keep in mind if you want the section number to start at 1 on a left hand page you need to disable shuffling for that spread.
Eugene, I don't think this will help me, I need both.
Peter - I think I'm doing something wrong because it's not working - I think I'll go back to what I normally do, and that's to have different documents for each section, and put them all together in the end as a book. It's not great but at least I'm familiar with it
