At the moment, in Writer, page numbers in the footer show 'page numbers' (exactly that) in the field instead of the actual number. If I go to print preview the page numbers show correctly and if I print they are printed correctly. It doesn't matter if I use insert - page number or insert - field - page number the result is the same. Using Version: in MX Linux with XFCE.
