Haven’t posted for a while, but am still a DTPro user - despite the unbelievable fact that Dthe DTpro-people don’t seem to do as I say when i say it
But seriously, I have another little thing that brings me trouble.
I have discovered that Adobe Acrobat Pro is actually worth the money (for me anyway). Acrobat can especially do one thing that is a life-saving necessity for me.
I often receive pdf’s that have been generated by people/machines that either don’t think or just want to make my life difficult. This means that very often I will receive a document that is say 355 pages, of which the four first pages are not numbered, they just contain a list of contents or similar. I.e “page one” is actually lets say the “fourth page” and after that there is sequential numbering.
This means that if you have your document open and someone asks to you to go to page 54 and you let your fingers magically work the keyboard (Go To Page…") you end up on page 51 despite the fact that you typed in “54”.
Acrobat can change this for me, I can change the numbering of the pages so that the first there pages have roman numeral I, the second one II etc. So when I am in Acrobat and type 54 I actually end up on page 54…i.e “Go to page…” works.
So I’m a happy camper… untill… i access that document in DTPro. It appears that DTPro cannot recognize these changes that Acrobat has made. So in DTPro page 54 is actually page 51.
I would so very much like DTPro to either see the changes made by Acrobat or allow me to renumber the pages so that I can decide where page one begins.
