My version of Publisher is 1.7.0.249

Have tried to get page numbering to work but after selecting TEXT and then INSERT, there is no PAGE NUMBER. Is it missing from my version or have I failed to do something.

Cheers

Rog

Try the Fields Studio, but also the menu list should be Text > Insert > Fields > Page Number.

Thanks for that. I do now see Page Numbering under Fields but it is greyed out.

Do you have a Text Frame selected, with the text insertion cursor within the frame?

I can insert page numbers directly into document pages that have Masters applied.

I'm (just about) managing to cope with numbering pages for a book, but after inserting the text into the frame on the master page, the page number appears absolutely enormous – to make it look sensible I have to reduce the font size to about 4pt. Am I doing something wrong?

I normally use InDesign, which doesn't have that problem.

Sounds like you may have scaled the Text Frame using the lower-right, detached, handle rather than the corner handle. Doing that would also enlarge the text.

I'd followed the instructions to the letter. But I did discover the problem – for some reason Drop Caps was checked! How on earth???

Thanks anyway for your help.

Does anyone have an idea what I did wrong here? Page numbers work on almost all other pages in the doc (Only one Master Page) but maybe I screwed up somewhere. I attached a pic of the layers of the page in case that's where I screwed up

Hi @David Gerson,

the red dots indicate text overflow of the text frame in which your page numbers are placed. Try to make the text frame wider (on the master page).
