Yes, you can skip pages.
The skip value will cause the program to literally “skip” pages – print blank pages. Pages are skipped in succession, so if 2 is entered for the Skip value, the program will print a numbered page and then print 2 blank pages.
The Ascending and Descending buttons allow you to control the order in which sequential numbers are printed out on the page.
If Ascending is selected, the Master Head number will increase from the Start Number to the Total Pages value.
If Descending is selected, the printed numbering sequence will decrease starting from the Total Pages value to the Start Number.
The design window will show the final calculated number in the sequence.
This is the number of sheets of paper you intend to run through your printer. For example, if you need 1,000 invoices printed 2-up on a single sheet, your Total Pages value would be 500.
The Total Pages value will be however many finished forms you desire divided by however many “up” you are running in the job:
Note: The Total Pages value will match the Print/Print Range value.
You can use Print Preview in the File menu to simulate the print job before you output it to paper.
The Start number allows you to choose what value starts the numbering sequence and is the value for the master numbering head. The template editor will display this value for the master head when the numbering direction is set to ascending. If the numbering direction is set to descending, you will not see the start value, but rather the ending value that is calculated for you.
