Pages ’09: Bug with page count

I don’t know who’s on the AppleSeed program for iWork, but they are not doing their job properly. Pages ’09 has a new and rather obvious bug affecting the “Page Count” feature (accessible through the “Insert” menu).

If you have a Pages document with two sections, and you set the options for the second section so that its page numbering restarts at 1 instead of continuing from the previous section, then if you insert the page count somewhere in that section, it will be the page count for the entire document, instead of being the page count for the current section only.

This makes the page count feature totally useless for documents with multiple sections that each have their own page numbering scheme.

Tsk tsk.
