How to Change Page Numbers in PDF

2020-11-10 21:32:00 • Filed to: How-To • Proven solutions

I have a 33-page PDF file that I scanned into my computer. I need to renumber pages 1 (a cover) and 2 (a Table of Contents) as i and ii. The third page, which is page one of the actual document, needs to be numbered as page 1- so that when a viewer wants to jump to page 1, the viewer is directed to page 1, not the cover. Any solutions? Yes, with PDFelement, you can easily change the page numbers of your document. It is not just page numbers but also changes page number format.
