I have a portrait document consisting of numeruous pages. I've now inserted 2 landscape pages in different position of the document. Unfortunately page numbering doesn't appear on the inserted pages but strangely enough the document's total page count is correct. Could somebody please tell me what I have to do that the page numbering also appears on the two inserted landscape pages. Thank you very much for your help.

The landscape pages where inserted with their own page styles, e.g. built-in Landscape while the rest of your document is Default Style.

The page number is usually shown in the header or footer. Header/footer are attributes of the page style. This means what you did in Default Style is not inherited by Landscape (because the new part can be radically different from the other).

Go to the header/footer and Insert>Field>Page Number there.

Thank you very much. I double-clicked in the Footer field of a landscape page, clicked on Footer (Landscape) drop-down and then on Insert Page Number.
