Title: Automatic page numbering not working
Post by: evansorrell on August 21, 2016, 03:11:05 pm
Hello again! I have recently set up the master pages with the "automatic page numbering" using ## however all it displays on all of the pages is ## and no numbers. I am using Scribus Version 1.4.6 on a windows machine :)

The page number field is visually represented by a # symbol, but it is not a regular # character but a special field inserted using the Insert menu and the Character sub-menu. (Or Ctrl-Shift-Alt-P)

on top of what nermander says: in modern version of scribus you only need one "page number" character to get the full number...

Thank you both! I love this program, I just need to learn how to use it properly!
