    Change style of Inherited Page Number

    Jack Level 1

      Where are the instructions for changing the paragraph style of existing page numbers, or how does one gain access to the text box containing the page-number area of a master page?

       

      Two alternate approaches present themselves: creating an inherited page master, or changing page-number style of an existing mater. Both approaches involve the need to change the style of an existing page numbering system. There is lots of guidance for inserting page numbers from scratch, but I cannot find the hook to select the page-number text in order to alter its paragraph style. I have tried to select the layer that includes the page number, but cannot gain access to the text box for the page number itself.

       

      Any ideas appreciated.
