Exclude last page from page count?

Is there a way to exclude the last page of a document from the page count? I'd like to use the last page to track the distribution of the document. This page would be for my records only, and would not be included when I print. But the page count in the footer (1 of 10, 2 of 10, etc.) counts that pa...

Nisus versus the future

I have a friend who has about 4,000 files in the defunct PageMaker format. Adobe's approved upgrade path is to InDesign. She doesn't like InDesign, and finds that her files still get mangled in transition. Even if the conversion utility worked perfectly, she would still have to touch 4,000 files unl...
