Front Matter Counted in Page Numbering in Docx

Hi there,

I am trying to get the Title Page in my Front Matter to remain uncounted for the purpose of page numbering.

It works in PDF but is still being counted in docx, regardless of whether I check or uncheck “Page numbers count first pages” in “Page Settings.”

I’m using Scrivener 3 for Mac.

I would be very grateful for any assistance!

With best wishes,


Here are some images of how I have things configured in Scrivener 3 — Compile is still counting the Title Page/Front Matter as page one even though I have unchecked “Page numbers count first pages” in “Page Settings.”

Thanks for any assistance!

Hi, Jenny

This thread might not provide a solution, but it seems that you’re not alone with front-matter issues/numbering when compiling to docx.

Thanks Bridey! Yes it works fine in PDF…seems like a bug that could be fixed pretty easily!
