Re: Page numbering
hello auggybendoggy,
sorry for me my bad english, i'm a normal and new user and you guess i've got a german speaking version of calamus sl 2006.

This is the solution i hope, i've looked at the online help an find this upon that might would help you:

As already mentioned, Calamus performs semi-automatic page numbering. In practice this means: Wherever you want a page number to be printed, you insert a placeholder (see Text module, "Control codes" function group) for it in the text. When you click on "Reformat document" in the Options menu, Calamus will replace all placeholders with the correct page numbers. If you add or delete pages later, this numbering will no longer be correct of course. In that case just reformat the document again.

In the dialog box illustrated above you can choose the numbering style, and also which numbers are to be printed on which pages. The page number printed has no connection with the physical page, i.e., the number shown in the top bar of the document window. All this sounds fine in theory, but an example is required: First, there must be a text frame on every page, and the text frames must contain the control character for inserting the current page number (see Text module, "Insert page number"). It is best to create header or footer frames for this purpose on the master page (see below). Now, click on the Page numbering icon. Enter "1" for the Start number. Clicking on [OK] will close the dialog box. Now, the appropriate page number will appear on every page.

Next, insert a page into your document. The header or footer frame holding page numbers appears as you would expect (it is present on the master page, after all), but there is no page number in it. Instead you will see three question marks there: ???. You can fix that by clicking on the Page numbering icon once more. Confirm the dialog box settings by clicking [OK], and there will be a page number on the new page.

If the numbering is not to be continuous because, say, you plan to add further complete page(s) later, you can enter the range of physical page numbers (i.e. those shown in the top bar) that are to be numbered in order in the Page numbering dialog box. Then enter the (printed) page number for the first page of this range in the "Start:" edit field.

Greetings Tillmann H.
