I realize this is probably an unusal request...
But is it possible to exempt certain pages from the total page count of a PDF document.
Say I have a document with 23 pages, but 3 of those pages contain a large image instead of the main body text.
When I open this document in Acrobat Reader, the page counter will show "1/23".
But can I somehow exempt the 3 image pages from the total page count so the page counter shows "1/20" without REMOVING the image pages from the document?
Is this in any way possible?
You can't really totally ignore those pages in the page count, but you can set their labels to something else. For example, if you have a 23-page document, this code will set the first 3 pages to "i" and the rest to 1 to 20:
this.setPageLabels(0, [ "r", "", 1]);
this.setPageLabels(1, [ "r", "", 1]);
this.setPageLabels(2, [ "r", "", 1]);
this.setPageLabels(3, [ "D", "", 1]);
The total page number will still be 23, though. There's nothing you can do about that.
