Offsetting page numbers to match printed copies

All Categories / Working with Scores

Some PDFs may contain extra pages at the start of the score that aren’t paginated in print. To compensate for this, tap on the Layout tab in the metadata panel, then tap the number next to “Page Number.” This allows you to set a page offset, so your page numbers will match any page numbers displayed in the file or on printed copies. For example, if the first two pages of a PDF show as roman numerals i and ii, enter “-1” in the field to offset the first page backward 2 steps from the PDF’s page 1.
