    Master Page page number showing up in a different location in exported PDF

    AJDesignCo Level 1

      Hi everyone,


      I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what InDesign is thinking, but I can't seem to find a solution.


      I have an eight-page document with facing master pages. I put a page number on the left page and the right page of the spread in the footer area. When I export the document to PDF, one of the page numbers "moves" from where I placed it up and to the left, near the middle of the spread.


      This is driving me nuts. I have tried to use different export settings. I have tried re-building the master page and creating new text frames with the page numbers. The page number still moves. And it is only Page 3. The rest of the page numbers are in the correct locations.


      Here is a screen grab of what I see in InDesign:

      (Note my red arrow pointing out the location of the page number. That text frame is a "Current Page Number" marker on the master page.)


      Here is a screen grab of the resulting exported PDF:

      If anyone else has overcome a similar problem or if you know why InDesign is behaving this way, please help. Thanks!
