I'm using a feature in Word that has worked for me for more than a decade: in the Footer, I select "Insert", "Quick Parts", "Field..." then Field names: "Page". I type "
of", then insert the "DocProperty Pages" field. Now, in the footer of page 3, for example, I see
3 of 5 (if the document has five pages). If the document grows, I "Select All" (Ctrl+A), then "Update" (F9).
In my current document, all works great until I print. The "Pages" field gets reset to 1 before it prints. After this, if I select it and update, it reverts to the correct value, but printing always resets it to 1. Anyone have an idea what could be going on?
