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.
