Posted this to comp.text.tex --- my apologies to those who're seeing it
If memory serves, this is one of the things which TeX simply doesn't
Something about an ``asynchronous page breaking mechanism'' or other?
Anyway, there are a couple of things I want to do on a per-spread
I'm not having any luck with, nor with finding docs / packages to help
I'm not searching on the right things --- I'd advise against doing a
``latex page spreads counter'' at work however).
Basically, the first and simplest thing I want is a counter that resets
recto, and starts anew on a verso --- but when I set this in the
using memoir if that matters)
it renumbers starting on a recto, continuing through the verso, then
on the next recto.
I've tried putting it in the other three places and results were less
/ more random (one of them actually caused incorrect numbering (3
before 2) on
I tried \strictpagechecktrue but no joy (and I got to watch marginpars
on the wrong side for the first run, weird).
Any other suggestions?
Does the ``\marks'' primitive in e-tex help with this sort of thing? If
does something else or has anyone else asked after / suggested such?
