How do I number the slides, but suppress the number on the first (title) slide?

To remove the page number from the first slide, follow these steps:

  • Select Insert  ▸ Page Number or View ▸ Header and Footer.
  • Check Do not show on the first slide.
  • Select Apply to All.

To remove the page number from certain slides, follow these steps:

  • Select the slide from which you want to remove the page number.
  • Select Insert ▸ Page Number or View ▸ Header and Footer.
  • Uncheck Page Number.
  • Select Apply to change only the current slide.

It is not possible to modify automatic page numbering. Your second slide will therefore always be number 2. You cannot start from 1.
