Where do you expect the page number to show up?

--- Quote ---As you already know, almost everything in Scribus has to happen in a frame, and page numbers are no different. Thus, to insert a page number, we need to create a text frame first. Once we have entered the editing mode of the frame, we can insert a variable for the page number, which will tell Scribus to insert the actual page number. There are two different ways to insert this variable, the first one being the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Shift+P. If you're afraid to break your fingers, you can assign a new shortcut in the Preferences dialog or use the menu command Insert > Character > Page Number. You can now see that Scribus shows the number of the current page, but this approach may not be what you want to achieve, as it will only add the page number to the currently selected page. If you want to automate the page numbering (also called "pagination"), you should insert the variable into a text frame on a Master Page. As you will note, Scribus doesn't display a real number on a Master Page, because a Master Page isn't a real document page and thus doesn't have a position in the sequence of pages. Instead, Scribus displays # as a placeholder symbol.

I tried this - ctrl-alt-shift-p.  Didn't seem to get a response in the text frame.  Tried to find the menu item, not found.  What am I missing?
Thanks.
