Hi AdmFubar,

I downloaded 1.6.1 and tried your suggestions. Still unable to produce page numbers. Replacing the red "#" with a regular "#" simply reads as a hashtag outside of the master page, not an automated page number. I've tried the same process on regular pages with a text box.

Regardless, thanks for your time.

Loaded your test document and poked around. Checked on the master pages, and found the page numbering text. Selected the text frame and opened it up in the story editor. The # was in red, that usually means some non printing control character. So I erased it and replaced it with another #, works just fine.

Select your master page and the page number text, open in the story editor and see what it looks like.
Now you are using a much older version of scribus, this might be why the there is an issue. Update to 1.6.1 as soon as you can.

Great idea. Here's a stripped, 5-page segment of my project. Thank you in advance!

dunno, maybe make a sample file by deleting 95 of the pages, replace your text with some lorem ipsum and save that as 'numbering_problem.sla' and post it up here?

I should point out that I resolved this issue by re-exporting the Scribus PDF using Apple Preview and clicking both options: PDF/A and PDF linear. 

Thanks for the great tool.

I am having the same issue here, except that none of the images are appearing either. There does seem to be some sort of ghost text, but the document appears empty when viewed in Chrome.  It's fine in Safari. I have normal mode on the text layer.

I have also tried outputting to different formats -- all of them in fact, and nothing is working. I even tried taking the pdf file from Scribus and resaving it in Acrobat.  Same result, empty file.

Any ideas on what else I can try?

Did you have scribus running when making the change? if have you restarted scribus after the change? not familiar with windows version of dark mode activation but the restart of scribus might be needed.

Hi all,

I'm in need of urgent assistance.

I have a 100+ page memoir ready for print and the last step is to add page numbers, yet they won't appear. I have read every thread I can find about adding page numbers, and despite following directions and scouring my settings, I cannot get automated page numbers to appear in my project. This problem persists regardless of the text box size; it's not simply being cut off. I am able to add page numbers on other documents, but not this specific one.

  • To add a page number, I create a text box, double click to activate the text cursor, then go to Insert -> Character -> Page Number. However, the page number does not appear. I've ensured that the text color is black.
  • All other elements in the Character tab insert and display as intended (e.g. trademark symbol).
  • When adding page numbers to a master page, the correct (#) box appears in the master page. Upon returning to the document and applying the master page to any given page, the page number does not appear. All other master page functions work as intended (e.g. I can add a text box with random text, and it displays correctly). The text frame is also there, and plenty large.
  • I've also tried using the "Sections" tab to set up numbering to no avail.

I've read official forum posts with directions, troubleshooting posts, and scoured through my settings to get to the root of this issue.
  • Under Preferences/Document Setup -> Tools, my "Text Color" and "Text Stroke" are both black, at 100% shading.
  • I've tried importing master pages from a document in which page numbering works, but the page numbers don't show up.
  • I only have one layer for this project, which is visible.

There has to be some setting toggled that I'm missing, but I can't find it. Or it's a bug. Any insight is SINCERELY appreciated; I'm on a tight deadline and this is driving me mad.

Thank you,

I have installed Scribus 1.6.1 on Windows 11, but I cannot find a way to activate dark mode in Scribus. The various themes don't result in dark mode. Also setting the global theme setting in Windows to dark doesn't help.

Quote from: Z4uit on April 02, 2024, 12:43:34 PMI like Scribus as a spreadsheet editor
Sorry, I mixed up terminology, I meant presentation editor.

Thank you for your suggestions, I will start puzzling!
