Do your page numbers show in Preview mode?
Is ID patched to 6.0.6?
What's the printer? Does the file print if you export to PDF and print from Acrobat?
Peter, Thanks for responding SNL. Regarding your questions:
- No page numbers show in Preview mode.
- Yes, I have InDesign version 6.06.
- Yes, I can print this chapter's PDF. Good Idea, hadn't thought of going that route.
- I have an Canon Pixma Photo Printer
If things don't show in preview mode that are supposed to, then they've been set to non-printing in some way, or there's an overprint of some sort that hides them, and they are not going to print.
We don't normally see printing problems associated with Canon printers, but this is a photo printer we're talking about, and ID isn't the greatest application at printing to desktop printers in general. The normal workaround is to export to PDF and print that. A few, perhaps more than a few, of us here advocate that as standard procedure even when ID gets along with our printers. I find it's generally faster to print and frees up my printer for the next job sooner.
