In InDesign CC how do I remove pagination from just the cover page?


I need to remove the pagination from the cover page in InDesign and start pagination with the second page of the layout.

  1. Go to the Pages window and there, double-click your master page. In place of the page numbers, you will see a letter. This gets replaced by the page number on actual pages.

  2. Select this letter and delete it. Now make sure to have your caret on position to replace that character, if you were to type.

  3. Go to Type → Insert Special Character → Markers → Previous Page Number. This will essentially increment all page numbers by one. So the cover page won't be 1 anymore – the page after it will.

  4. Now, go to your cover page in the Pages window.

  5. Press Ctrl+Shift and click on the page number. Now you can delete it.
