[duxuser] Re: page numbering

Jean:

I transcribe material for a number of individuals and companies.  Because I 
have no idea how they have the parameters set in the "Page Numbering..." item 
under the "Document" Menu, I use the DBT code [svpnp] to indicate where I want 
print reference page numbers and braille numbers to appear on a page.

The parameters used in the [svpnp] code, take precedence over the parameters 
set in the "Page Numbering..." item), to turn on and off the indication of 
braille and print reference page numbering at will.  The only information I 
need from the individual or company, is the name of the embosser they are 
using, whether they want print reference page numbering included in a 
particular document and whether they want braille page numbering on every page 
or only on odd pages, if their embosser is an interpoint embosser.  You can do 
all of this, using the DBT code [svpnp].

The syntax for this code is:

[svpnpn:n:n:n]

The first n indicates odd braille page numbering, the second n indicates even 
braille page numbering, the third n indicates odd print reference page 
numbering, the fourth n indicates even print reference page numbering.

Replace each letter n with a number from 0-4.  Typing 0, suppresses page 
numbering. Typing 1, places page numbers at the top left of the page.  Typing 
2, places page numbers at the top right of the page.  Typing 3, places page 
numbers at the bottom left of the page.  Typing 4, places page numbers at the 
bottom right of the page.

To suppress page numbering for page 1, use the DBT code [svpnp] as follows:

[svpnp0:0:0:0]

This must be the first code of your document.

Whether or not you started a new page by using the Windows command CTRL+ENTER 
or, you used the DBT code [top], the next code you should use is the DBT code 
[svpnpn:n:n:n], replacing each letter n with a number from 0-4, as described 
above, to indicate where you want braille and print reference page numbering to 
be placed on each page.

If your embosser is a single-sided embosser, you would need to show a braille 
page number on each page. To have braile page numbering placed at the top right 
corner of each page, you would enter the parameters in the [svpnp] code as 
follows:

[svpnp2:2:0:0]

I always put the two 0's just to make sure that print reference page numbering 
is actually suppressed.  I am told, that it is not necessary but,  I do not 
trust computers, software or programmers who write the software, so I do it to 
make sure that all circumstances are covered.

If you are using (BANA) braille rules and you want to show print reference page 
numbers at the top right of each page and the braille page numbers at the 
bottom right of each page, enter the parameters in the [svpnp] code as follows:

[svpnp4:4:2:2]

If you are using (BANA) braille rules and you want to show print reference page 
numbers at the top right of each page but, you only want to show braille page 
numbers at the bottom right on odd pages for an interpoint document, enter the 
parameters in the [svpnp] code as follows:

[svpnp4:0:2:2]

HTH

Dave Durber

  I'm having trouble with page numbering codes. 

  I have a document where I want the first page to have no page numbering. Then 
I'm starting physical page to as page number 1. I've got the second part, but I 
can't get rid of the page number on page 1. I can do it in DBT using the page 
numbering, but I can't figure out the codes to put them in my Word doc. 

  How do I totally suppress the page number on page 1 only? I've tried the pv0 
code but it's not working today for me. I've done this before but can't 
remember how I did it. 

  Thanks. 

  Jean
