I've got simple page numbering done on a master page A. I'm inserting pdf's into pages and they're layered over the page numbers. I've gotten by with just cutting a corner out of the pdf but this seems like a real cumbersome solution. I've tried making multiple layers on master page as well as rearranging objects, to no avail.
This has been a problem even with older versions of inDesign. Must be a simple solution to this!
You need to use the Layers panel, and put the page numbers on a higher layer in the stacking order.
Thanks! That did the trick. However, I should point out that in the tutorial (InDesign Help | Add basic page numbering) they mention nothing about putting the master page on a higher layer. Guess that's covered elsewhere.
