Can you show us a screen capture of the refernce format defintion dialog, like this:
I don't knowif you can see it clearly, but there is a page number tag: <pageNum /> at the end of the reference string. There is a list of markers you can access by clciking the + sign on the right side of the dialog. Other special characters are acessed through the @ button.
To embed an image in your post, use the camera icon on the web page:
I just moved all pages to a new document and now it seems to work.... strange...
I'm having the same page number problem with a specific document, but not in new documents.
I'm running Indesign cs 5 (7.0.4) on Windows 7.
I have tried to export the document as idml and save it as indd, but it does not help.
It is a template document with many pages and I don't want to recreate it from the beginning.
What can I do?
