it's a matter of calling canv.doForm() repeatedly on each page

and once your document is finished, just use canv.beginForm() and 
canv.endForm() and draw the page number between these calls, as you 
would do without them. 

this is from memory, so I may not have the method names right,
anyway there are only three of them to remember :-)
