A new text field "Page Count" is added to the impress/draw application. It behaves like the already available "Page Number" field, but instead of showing the current page number, it shows the current number of pages in the document. When viewed in edit mode on a master page, it still shows the number of slides in the document and not the number of master pages. It can be inserted into the document from the "Fields" submenu in the "Insert" menu. It is placed right after the menu entry for inserting the "Page Number" field.
