Subject Re: Page Number Question on Writer
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2012 22:09:44 GMT
I did my book using a master document to collect all of the individual 
parts of the book, i.e. preface, intro, table of contents (all with 
lower case roman numeral page numbers) and each chapter, starting with 
arabic page number 1. It's a little tedious to set up, but once it's set 
up it's a breeze.

When  I'm editing the individual pieces (files), each file begins with 
either  i  or  1  but when I open the master document, it collects all 
the individual files and the front matter is numbered consecutively 
beginning with  i  and the body is numbered consecutively beginning with  1.
