I cannot get the program to tell me how many pages the document is up to, nor which page my cursor is on. That part of the display simply vanished and I cannot find how to get it back. I want to get back the displayed number of pages and where in the document I am located.

Let me be clear. I AM NOT ASKING HOW TO NUMBER PAGES! I want the display at the bottom of the program where it shows how many pages there are in the document.

2016-03-06 20:56:02 +0200 commented answer Find and Find Replace in Spreadsheet

As I ended up going through all the entries manually I did not use <ctrl> H. I did not open <ctrl> H when I was attempting to use <ctrl> F to find something. I did not mark anything. If something got marked then the program did so on its own.

One of my avocations is linguistics, something that has been ill-supported for a long time by word processing programs all of which have assumed either a Roman style of Left to Right or a Semitic style of Right to Left composition. Not all languages work this way, and for artistic and poetical purposes what I am about to propose creates more expression opportunities for writers. This may also help in the reproduction and use of traditional languages around the world. With a language becoming extinct about every few weeks this is potentially a critical support to aid in slowing or halting that trend. If I could code I would do this, I cannot.

What would be helpful is if one could open a format that was part of the same place where it shows left, center, right, or justified formatting - but with more options. These option sets would be Horizontal or Vertical, Top to Bottom or Bottom to Top, and Boustrophedon, Right to Left, or Left to Right.

Languages and types of languages that would benefit from this attention:

Ancient Berber: R->L in columns B->T. Batak: R->L in columns B->T. Chinese: R->L in columns T->B, L->R in rows, or R->L in rows. In publications with columnar text headlines and titles appear R->L across the top of the text. Chữ-nôm: R->L in columns T->B. Egyptian Hieroglyphics: Columns T->B, L->R in rows, or R->L in rows. Elamite, Old: L->R in columns T->B. Etruscan: Boustrophedon and R->L horizontal. Hanuno'o: R->L in columns B->T. Japanese: Originally R->L in columns T->B. Horizontal forms began after 1868. Korean: Originally written R->L in columns T->B. Kulitan: R->L in columns T->B. Linear B: Boustrophedon. Manchu: L->R in columns T->B. Mayan: written in columns each containing two glyphs and each glyph comprised of various combined parts. Meroïtic (Hieroglyphic script): R->L in columns T->B. Mongolian: L->R in columns T->B. Nushu: R->L in columns T->B. Oirat Clear Script: L->R in columns T->B. Phags-pa: L->R in columns T->B. Rongo Rongo: Boustrophedon. Sabaean: Boustrophedon. Sogdian: L->R in columns T->B. Sutton Sign Writing: L->R in columns T->B. Székely-Hungarian Rovás: Boustrophedon. Tagbanwa: R->L in columns B->T. Tangut: R->L in columns T->B. Uyghur: L->R in columns T->B.

KEY to Abbreviations: Right to Left = R->L Left to Right = L->R Top to Bottom = T->B Bottom to Top = B->T

I supposed someone will tell me I was supposed to use the Database set up for what I am doing and then I wouldn't have this issue. That would be too late, and the DB was not intuitive enough for me to try it. (Frankly the last DB I almost liked was MS 2003 and it could not meet my needs in using multiple foreign scripts.) I used the spread sheet to do comparative analysis of 7 different cultural approaches to divine entities. However, my listings are getting into the hundreds, and I would like to have hit <ctrl> F and gone looking for a specific word. That did not work. I looked in the menus to see if there was something that leaped out and said,"Here I am! Use me to find the word for which you look." I saw nothing. By the time I find out if anyone looked at this I will already have done my search the old fashioned way. So, I made this post to suggest that if there is a Find function in the DB it needs hooked up to the same thing the world is used to using (ie. <ctrl> F and <ctrl> H). If there isn't then maybe one would be useful to more than just me. The tag requirements for posting make no sense to me either - none of them say Spreadsheet. The only tag that is appropriate is Find and it apparently won't take that.
