How do get the 'Page 1 of 3' to ignore the title page?

I've managed to get the current page number to ignore it but not the total number of pages.

see botom of page to start without counting the first page and use {={NUMPAGES}-1} to get a page count 1 shy of the total.

Page {PAGE} of {={NUMPAGES}-1}

to insert the braces (you can't just type them) you press [ctrl] F9

to toggle view to see the values press: [alt] F9
