Position Page numbering Master Page


Recommended Posts

I've set the placement of my page numbering on the Master Pages and it is somehow different on the actual pages. The odd pages are fine, but the even pages are off. To fix this, I tried to correct the placement in Master to be off, so it would look right on the pages, but then the pages were properly displayed except for the last 2 pages, which still are misplaced. It's weird. Any idea how to fix this or is this simply a bug?

The text is right-aligned, which is correct for the odd (right-hand) pages but wrong for the even (left-hand) ones.

To avoid such an issue of alignment within a text frame especially for such frames (e.g. page numbers) the alignments "towards" / "away from spine" are quite helpful. Works charming for facing masters (haven't tried yet for single master pages).

By the way: Single masters in a facing page document get treated by the app as left pages by default, which can confuse in specific aspects if used as right pages. Instead you could create a 2-page master spread and apply this to entire spreads or separated to left / right only if needed. For single pages the app will apply from such master its side according to the document's page position.

Thanks, that's very helpful!

I made it left-aligned, but the issue remains.. I tried to start from scratch with the master pages and that seemed that have solved the problem. I'm guessing there was an odd setting I'm not aware of or it was a glitch.
