Until today, the status bar that shows the page number, word count etc.,
displayed the page number info like so:
Page M of N (Page X)
where M was the current page within the document, N was the total number
of pages, and X was the page number as displayed on the bottom of the
page itself. This matched the callout that appears if you hover over
But today I noticed it had changed in my document to displaying a confusing:
Page M of N (Page M-1 of N-1 to print)
So I've lost the display of the page number shown, and it seems to be
telling me there is now one less page to print than there actual pages.
I couldn't find an explanation by googling.
I found the https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Status_Bar but that is
marked as only relevant up to v 6.0, and is a little on the terse side,
especially when compared to a page like
(which is clearly wrong and out of date in many respects now).
I was just wondering if the status bar is planned to be fully documented
in the upcoming, updated guide?
(If so, I would enjoy learning what my page count display area now means!)
