I cannot for the life of me figure out how to start a numbering section on a page other than the first page of the doc (for example, if I want "Page 1" to appear on page 7 of the doc). The previous way doesn't seem to work, which is simply to select Numbering and Section Options, click Start Section, and enter the page number I want to start with. Now when I do that, I get the warning that I will have duplicate page numbers and when I click OK the page number doesn't change.
I also tried providing a section prefix for the new section (and for the previous section, the one which I don't want page numbers in), which didn't work either.
What am I missing?
To get around the duplicate page numbers problem, change the number style on the first section (front matter is typically numbered in small roman numerals).
