Hi :)
Has anyone been able to fix this yet?  I tend to prefer to spell it out and say "Page x of n." but 
i think i'm alone in doing that.  I have seen the / mark used quite frequently.  It's interesting to see how 
other countries or other professions or industries do things slightly differently.  Doing things the 'wrong' 
way can cause endless problems even if they are substantially better.

I have mostly seen either "Page x of y", "x", or more rarely "x of y" in the US. The "x / y" page notation is not very common from what I have seen in the US.

Hi Regina,

Why do you want to give the information this way? For not binded sheets
a phrase "k / n" is common, where k is the field "Page number" and n is
the field "Page count".

Yes, I also use the "k / n" thingy.

Yet, here in France, the ".../..." at the bottom of pages (eq "to be cont'd") is *very* common since the typewriter 
days and many people just demand they are there, even though we now use computers <sigh>. Unfortunately, I'm not in a position 
where I may impose anything. If I had been, I'd have dismissed that ".../..." thing, believe me. Thus, my wish to help my 
colleagues to get that thing automagically.
