Hi!

Is there any way to skip the first two pages when inserting page numbers, i.e so that effectively the third page has number 1, the fourth page has number 2 and so on?

According to the documentation it seems to be possible to have a special first page (for example excluding page numbering) but it does not say if it would be possible to do the same with the second page.

Thanks. 

Best,

Brc

Hello,

UPDATE: phpdocx 9 added the pageNumberType option to set start and format values when creating new sections using addSection.

You can work with sections (https://www.phpdocx.com/api-documentation/layout-and-general/add-section-Word-document-with-PHP)  or a custom template. Anyway, the easiest solution is generating the DOCX documents standalone (first and second pages as a document, and other DOCX with the page numbering) and then merge them using mergeDocx (https://www.phpdocx.com/api-documentation/docxutilities/merge-Word-documents-with-PHP).

Regards.
