No, you can't do this (and I don't think it is a good idea in a page 
layout software). But you can use master pages (page templates): Create 
templates and insert page numbers in the templates. Use templates for 
left and right pages. That way, each page will include the page number 
automatically. Please have a look at Niyam Bushan's tutorial to find out 
how to do it.

Time for an update, isn't it? 1.2.4cvs works great and is way faster 
than 1.2.1!
