Default Attached Envelope should not be counted as a page for {NUMPAGES}

When an envelope is added to a document it is counted as a page as far as
{NUMPAGE} is concerned. So if there is an envelope and 2 pages, the footer
says "Page 0 out of 3, PAGE 1 OUT OF 3 AND Page 2 out of 3. Not good for
legal documents that need to tell the total number of real pages. Suggest
that the envelope not be counted as a page by {NUMPAGE}

It could be argued that there ought to be an option not to count page 0 as a
page in any case. In this specific situation, however, you can use
SECTIONPAGES instead of NUMPAGES since the letter and envelope are separate
sections.

Hi ?B?QmFycnk=?=,

When an envelope is added to a document it is counted as a page as far as
{NUMPAGE} is concerned. So if there is an envelope and 2 pages, the footer
says "Page 0 out of 3, PAGE 1 OUT OF 3 AND Page 2 out of 3. Not good for
legal documents that need to tell the total number of real pages. Suggest
that the envelope not be counted as a page by {NUMPAGE}

1. Set up separate headers and footers for the document. Make sure "Same as
Previous is turned off". Define a header/footer for the document pages, but
not for the envelope section.

2. In order to get only the pages in the document section, use the file
SECTIONPAGES.

I appreciate that.... And it will work, as you allude, as long as there are
not any additional sections besides the envelope and main document. I think
your idea of an option to exclude the envelope is a good one. Thanks.

Thank you. Your suggestion will work fine as long as there is not more than
1 other section besides the envelope......however, this is frequently not the
case and many documents have more than 1 section besides the envelope. I
think the suggestion to make an option to exclude an envelope from page count
would seem to cover all situations. Thanks again.

In this case you can use:

{IF {Page} = "0""""Page {Page} out of {=({Numpages}-1)}"

That certainly works. And thanks for reminding me that conditionals can be
done.

Glad I could help. For a really interesting feat using conditionals
(figured out by Peter Jamieson) see the topic "Advanced Conditional
