It’s common to want to add page numbers to a PDF file that don’t match the media or sheets. So, for example, the physical sheet 3 might have a page number of 1, sheet 4 might have a page number of 2 etc.
Enfocus PitStop Pro has a powerful Global Action for adding page numbers as we explored in a previous tutorial. However the page number sequences are always linked to the first sheet of the file. For example, you can’t easily start page number 1 on sheet 3 and ignore sheets 1 and 2.
In this tutorial, we’ll look at how to add PDF page numbers that don’t match sheet numbers with PitStop Pro using Add Variable Text from the Global Change palette. By using Add Variable Text we can match our page number sequences to any range of sheets we like.
