When I used to add a page number, it would be just the number and no background color (i.e. just the number on top of the default white background).

But for some reason, now all my page numbers have a grey background behind the number. This happens when I open up a New document as well. Somehow the style has changed to always insert a grey background to the page numbers.

I am doing the following:
Insert>Field>Page Numbers

This grey background effect happens whether I insert the page number in the footer or in the main body of the page.

Please advise how to fix this. I do not want this grey background when I insert page numbers.
