I have a simple request. I would be nice to have a special code similar to #P (for page number) to represent the "number of pages." I generally like to put the text "Page 2 of 3" or the like in the header, beginning with the second page. I use #P for the page number but I do the "number of pages" manually. The thing is I am forever forgetting to set it to the correct value when the number of pages changes. It would be nice if Overture could do this for me.

You can do this half-way. You may have a good idea how much pages there are. For the flow of inputting assume you have 45 pages in total (do Ctrl-End fo a jump to the last page).

Now fill in:

#P of 45 (beginning with page 2).

Then you will see what you want. Later when you've finished the piece correct the last page number. And voila!

It is not the best solution, but for the time being......

Thanks, Raymond. That's pretty much what I do now. It's just that quite often I forget to go back and put in the right number. A special code would make it automatic and would work well for a template too.
