I agree with Gavin... good answer. I'd forgotten the page palette.

I had wondered about putting temporary text on the page via master pages, but the problem is wanting the page "index" number - as in 1st 2nd 3rd nth page in document rather than the page number (the number that appears on the page).

You're at the mercy of what the software provides in terms of functions or objects that can appear in text.

And if you're not a programmer...

Pity I never got as far as allowing programatically generated text.

OK, how about this, we have a temporary text frame on the master pages, and we put in it text which is auto numbered, and we put in enough paragraphs to make that text go through the document. I reckon that would work.
