[Solved] Footer fields not acting like before

Postby brody » Thu Mar 26, 2020 9:34 pm

Noticed this morning using ver 4.1.6 that my date, time, filename, page number, page count fields in the footer weren't displaying any data. They were just showing the field names.

I'm positive they used to.

So, I upgraded to ver 4.1.7 today....same thing.

Is there some setting I've screwed up?

thanks,
Brody.
ps: windows 10

Dear god, thank you. I would have NEVER found that - esp since I didn't think it would be an option.

Wow!
