I realize this is probably an unusal request...

But is it possible, either with doPDF or another tool, to exempt certain pages from the total page count of a PDF document.

Say I have a document with 23 pages, but 3 of those pages contain a large image instead of the main body text.

When I open this document in Acrobat Reader, the page counter will show "1/23".

But can I somehow exempt the image pages from the total page count so the page counter shows "1/20" without REMOVING the image pages from the document?

Is this in any way possible?

doPDF only prints whatever it receives from the source application. It cannot handle the PDF as you have described unfortunately.

Thank you.
