[Solved] Writer shows "Page numbers", not the actual number

Postby bluuuuuuuuurgh » Mon Aug 17, 2020 1:06 am

I'm having a weird problem where when I try to add page numbers, it just shows the words "Page numbers" on every page instead of the actual numbers. Does anyone know how to fix this? I've tried Googling and re-installing the program and nothing works.
