Hi Dave,

If you are using unstructured FrameMaker, there is an undocumented (and 
unsupported) FrameMaker feature called point pages. Open your document and 
press Esc p z in sequence. Select the numbering style and click Freeze. Now 
add some content to one of the pages so it overflows the page and watch what 
happens.

Of course, if your document contains autonumbers, you can see why the 
feature is undocumented and unsupported. But I have developed a plugin 
called PointPages that allows you to use point pages while solving the 
autonumbering problem. If you are interested, let me know and I will send 
you the documentation. Thanks.
