The changes that I set in the Page Numbering dialog in Acrobat XI Pro are not applied when I click OK. I select the page, then click Begin new section, then choose the style (I've tried all types), then write 1 in the Start, then click OK - nothing happens to the pages displayed in the page thumbnails?
My document starts with 4 front matter pages (i, ii, iii, iv) and then page 1, but the page number displayed on the top toolbar starts at page 1. I tried changing the first 4 pages from integers to roman numerals in the Page Numbering dialog, but no effect. I tried to select None but nothing happens.
Am I missing something? I would appreciate any thoughts.
This should work. If the document is protected and you cannot change it, the "Number Pages" option will be grayed out, so if it's accessible, you should be able to change the page number (or page label) settings.
Have you tried with a different document? You can for example download this sample document and play around with it: http://khkonsulting.com/files/Sample75Pages.pdf
