    I have a document with 2 sections. E.g. Section 1 = 2 pages, section 2 = 5
    pages. I've started my page numbering for section 2 at page number 1;
    i'm using the 'Page X of Y' option - all OK. my section 2 i
    want it to say page 1 of 5 (or 2 of 5, etc), but it's giving me page 1
    of 7, 2 of 7, etc. i.e. it's using the total number of pages in the
    document as Y value, instead of just the number of pages in that section.
    I know that you can limit Y to equal the number of pages in that
    section, because i have a document where it's been done it...but i can't work
    out how.
