I have a 300 page book in InDesign. There are no sections, so I chose Absolute numbering,  but I don't want a number to appear on the first 12 pages, which preclude the text. I don't want the page number to appear until page 13. How do I get rid of the numbering on the first 12 pages?

Option 1. Why don't you create a "new section" that will start at page 13?

Option 2. Use different master pages OR override/remove page numbers from the first 12 pages

Does this make any sense to you?

Thanks for answering. I’d rather just override/remove page numbers from the first 12 pages but I don’t know how to do that.

Command/Ctrl+Shift+click the item(s) you want to override on the page you want them overridden on. This will unlock them from the master page and make them in-page elements.
