“Where do I set the starting page number for my document?”

In PageMaker, you can set the starting page number for your document by typing a number in the Start page # field in the Document Setup window (when opening a new document, or via File>Document Setup later). This allows for the renumbering of pages, as in the building of sections, as the document was being created.

In InDesign, however, you define your page numbering using the Numbering & Section Options dialog (choose Layout>Numbering & Section Options; see Figure 2-5). This dialog box also offers the added capability of applying unique section prefixes, numbering styles, and section markers. The section page numbering is applied to whatever page is currently selected in the Pages palette.
