Restarting Page Numbers

We'd like to replace our current PDF solution with Aspose.Pdf, but there's one thing I've seen so far that will stop us. (I haven't yet dug into the flexibility of simulating nested page headers and "keep together" logic, so I may find more issues later.)

I know "Page $p of $P" provides a way to display the current page compared to the entire number of pages within the whole document. Is there a way to re-start page numbers with a new section?

I need to be able to have pages with footers something like the following, all within a single PDF document:

Patient 1: Page 1 of 2
Patient 1: Page 2 of 2
Patient 2: Page 1 of 3
Patient 2: Page 2 of 3
Patient 2: Page 3 of 3

Is that doable in Aspose.PDF?

Dear sdwire,

Thank you for considering Aspose.

The function you want is not supported in the current version. But it seems a useful feature so I will add support for it in my next task which will start at the end of this month. How urgent you are?

Does this feature available now?
We have version

I have supported this feature. Please refer to Aspose.Pdf Hotfix 2.1.6 Released!.

pdf.IsPageNumberRestarted=True is a nice feature.

but it Restarted page number for every new section which is not expected to me,

we want to set pdf.IsPageNumberRestarted=Ture after first section and continue page numbers for the remaning sections like pdf.IsPageNumberRestarted=False for the next sections.

it will just effective for the remaning new sections, not the whole pdf document as it do now.

regards …

examp: Output:

Dim sec1 As Section = pdf.Sections.Add page1 sec1
… …
… page2

page1 sec2

Dim sec2 As Section = pdf.Sections.Add page2
… …
… page3 sec3
Dim sec3 As Section = pdf.Sections.Add …
… pagen
… …
