Don't know why this could happen and is there anything to change in the settings?
Also I had this problem before, but I forgot how to solve it. After placing the numbering, it automatically is placed underneath my design.
I tried to right click the number text and set it to first object above, but it seems to be a wrong solution.
Thanks so much!!!!
Tale a look to auto-numbering para style option!
Work with Layers, put the number on the master on the top most layer.
On the master you will not see any number, you see the Letter(s) of the Master's name.
The op sees "1.A". so, he's on a master page "A-…" but, apparently, the para has an auto-numbering option!
