Is it possible to start page numbers at other than 1?
Might there be a way to make up a stamp that will do this?

Many thanks for a great program.

   The program will add the page number of the page. It sounds like you need a "correction" factor, so that you can offset the page number.

   That feature is not there.  But, if you need to start at a higher number (for example, page 5), I would add a PDF in the merge list with 4 blank pages ahead of your main file. Once the page numbers have been added, you can use the page delete tool to remove the first four blank pages.

   I hope that helps.

Many thanks Michel,
I had wondered about blank pages but had not thought that I could delete them afterwards - that is a great work-around thanks.

I need to offset the page number by around 100 as am printing a big volume of illustrations to follow a lot of text (PhD submission next week!).

I've just worked out that it does not take much time to make 100 blank pages in word, so am all set - just have to finish the writing now!

Thanks again for a great program.
