Give careful consideration if you contemplate having different pagination for printed and PDF versions of the same doc, especially if you are not using numbered paragraphs. Sooner or later, there will come a time when a user viewing the PDF is attempting to coordinate remotely with a user with a printed manual, and they will not be able to sync their places by page number. Might only be a minor annoyance...unless the users are attempting to perform emergency medical procedures or diagnose an in-flight engine failure.
