2018-04-24 22:43:43 +0100 marked best answer My page numbers are now showing up as 'Page numbers'. What went wrong?

This morning all was well, this afternoon my odt documents that contain page numbers have the page number replaced with the text 'Page numbers' (without the quotes). This is happening with my freshly edited and saved docs AS WELL AS documents that haven't been touched for a long time (except to open them just now to inspect. I should also mention that if I save the document as a pdf, the pdf shows the correct pagination.

"I haven't changed anything, honest" (yeah right, we've heard THAT before...)

Does anyone have any clues about what might have happened? Thanks...

I'm not sleeping tonight until I figure this out. :) And yes to your question. I think I meant what you said you wondered about when you asked if I meant what I said.

2016-03-05 17:29:24 +0100 answered a question Sorting a range that is referenced elsewhere

It amazes me what a reboot will fix. When I had the original problem, I did NOT have the "update references when sorting" option set. After changing the option, and after numerous close/open/retries, the problem persisted with the original file, but not with my test file. After a reboot of the machine, everything works as expected. Thanks for helping me puzzle through this. (I don't think I selected the "load LibreOffice at system boot" option on this machine when I installed LO)...
