I've just started using text variables. I've followed all directions (Go to Type>Text Variables>Insert Variable) but no matter what variable I try to insert, the word equation appears before the variable.
Ex. If I insert the page number and I'm looking at page 5, it would appear on the page as equation 5.
I've tried editing the variables and there's nothing in the text before box. I've even tried to insert text, in case it needed text before the variable. However, when I do that, the word equation still appears, just before the text before.
Ex. Chapter number. If I enter the prefix Ch. and the chapter's 3, the variable turns out as "Equation Ch. 3."
What am I doing wrong?
I am unable to reproduce this with the latest build. Can you please tell us what specific version of INDD and what operating system?
The operating system is the MacOSSierra 10.12.1.
Indesign is 2017.
