For my PDF output, can I restart page numbering for each folder (chapter)?

For my PDF output, I would like to restart page numbering (with page 1) for each folder (chapter) of the PDF.  It doesn't look like this is possible.  Or am I missing something?

 

(I am using Master Pages to put a page number in the footer, but I don't see how I could restart the numbering with each folder.)

I don't think that is possible in any version of RoboHelp. It rather goes against any printed book norm.

I've seen that style numbering in some books, and also A-1, B-1 style numbering. I don't think I've seen a request for this in the Robohelp forums before, though. 

 

The only way I can think of is to generate to Word, fix the section breaks and page numbering in Word, then output to PDF from there.
