Hi Philip,

I have the page number field in the footer of my template. This template will be used for a series of small documents to be issued in pdf form. My intention is to use Writer to export to pdf and then use pdf-shuffler or similar to append a first page as title page without any page number and prepared in different software.

Why not use Writer for the first page?

In anticipation , I edited the page no. field to have an offset of 1 so that my page numbering in Writer would start at 2.

That is the wrong tool for your purpose. Go to the very first paragraph of the page. Open the properties of that paragraph. Go to tab "Text flow". Enable Breaks "Insert". Enable "With page style". Enable "Page number". Enter 2.

The tool "Offset" has a totally different use case. It is used in letter for the information in the footer, that this page of the letter has a following page. And for this use case it is the correct behavior, that it is empty for the last page of the letter.

Kind regards
