OK, I am new to indesign and I can't figure out the page numbering.
According to the tutorials, I select the master page from the pallette, create a text box, then go to
type-->insert special character-->markers-->current page number
the letter "A" is supposed to appear. It doesn't. I get a number 1, which I can't do anything with (I have to manually do this on every page now)
what am I missing here?
Are you sure that you actually selected the master page? You have to double click on it, not a single click. What dou you read in the lower left corner of your screen? 1 or A?
