[Solved-Workaround] Wrong page number

Postby chris64 » Sun Apr 19, 2020 9:21 am

I inserted fields on my footer. On my footer is Page # of ##. This shows correctly on the screen. For example, if I'm on page 2 in a 4-page document it will show on the screen page 2 of 4. If I scroll down to the next page, it will correctly show page 3 of 4. However, When I print these pages, each page will say page 4 of 4. :?:

Solved

(I don't know how to update this to solved)

Verify that you have used the correct field names by turning on /View /Field Names (that same command will turn the display off); your document should show Page numbers of Statistics.

To avoid wasting paper, you can first export as PDF to check what are the page numbers.

I found a bug
The problem happens only if I print selection. It doesn't happen if I print all. I found a work around. I delete everything that I don't want printed. I then print everything. It works ok then.
