When I use the method here to change the cover page of a document to page 0, the “Page Count” Field in the footers of the remaining pages increases by one. The entire entry in the footer is
Page <Page Number> of <Page Count>. So in a document that just contains the cover page and one more page, it changes from “Page 2 of 2” to “Page 1 of 3”.
I really need it to say “Page 1 of 1”, but even barring that I can’t have it suggesting there are pages that don’t exist. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this, other than manually maintaining the page count number in the footer?
