Omit Page from Page Numbering

My first canvas is a coverpage followed by subsequent canvases. Using <%#%> in my shared footer layer I would like my second canvas to start at number 1. I don’t want my first canvas to count towards my page count. Is there a way to accomplish this?

I don’t think there is the way your like - say like other software with section numbering or modifying the # variable. For exactly what your asking I think you need to save the cover page as a separate file and then merge once they’re PDFs.

Happy to be wrong on this but the Graffle variables seem fixed.
