Odd request, I know. But a client wants to start page numbering on the THIRD page of a PPT deck with that page being #2. Other than manually numbering each page, I can't find a way to get PPT to do this for me. Is it impossible?

You can start numbering at 0. It's with the Page Setup settings, but you didn't mention which version of PPT you're using so I can't give specifics.

If the client doesn't want the first two slides numbered, you'd have to delete or hide the page numbers or base those on a different master that doesn't have any page numbers.

It's on the Design tab under Page Setup. Change the "number slides from" setting. And then in 2007, you can just delete the page number directly from the first two slides.

Oh, I assumed you know to use Insert | Header and Footer and check the page number option there to add the page numbers. But maybe you don't...

I know how to do that. I just didn't realize they put the other option on Page Setup. Would be nice if they kept it all in the same place.... I think I got it. Thanks!
