Change Page Section Starting number

Postby dpssundr » 06 Sep 2017, 11:09

I'm trying to change the start number from 1 to 500. I know how to do it manually Page/Section check the Section Start and change the number to 500. I having trouble doing that with applescript.
If someone could point me in the correct direction or give an example that would be much appreciated.
Thank you

Hi!

2 things (excerpt from AppleEventsScripting.pdf):

1. Pages are numbered according to their absolute page numbers rather than section page numbers.
2. QUARKXPRESS SCRIPTING CONTAINMENT HIERARCHY OBJECT LIMITATIONS
The Apple events implementation in QuarkXPress does not currently support the following:
• Long-document features: Books, libraries, lists, indexing, and section page numbers
• Text: Editing auxiliary dictionaries and hyphenation exceptions
• Pictures: Editing clipping paths
• Items: Merge/split functions, box creation default settings, and anchored boxes
• Color and printing: Multi-Ink colors, Hexachrome® colors, print styles, and the PPD Manager
• XTensions Manager and most QuarkXTensions® software distributed by Quark

HTH.
