Page Numbering


Recommended Posts

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

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

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7.1 
Affinity Designer 2.0.0 | Affinity Photo 2.0.0 | Affinity Publisher 2.0.0 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

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?

The last time I saw something like that greyed our it was because I neede to make the change on a master page. Could that be it?

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? 

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).
