I am in the last stages of proofing the final version of my book, both on epub and in pdf in the paperback format, and I am about to send the revised version for publication.
But I just noticed something quite strange on the pdf version: one of the last pages (Acknowledgements), which is a separate file in the draft folder, is not numbered, as opposed to the previous and subsequent pages. I checked the settings of the file, compared to the adjacent ones and, as far as I can tell, they are the same. Yet, there is no page number on that one.
Then I tried to duplicate the previous file : It was also numbered after compile. But when I copied-pasted the content of the Acknowledgements page on this file and launched an new compile, the page number had also disapeared.
I am at a loss as to why it is the case. Not that it matters a lot, but, for one, it would be nice if all the pages were actually properly numbered, and second, for the sake of my mental health, I would be grateful if someone could provide me with a rational explanation and, while we are at it, a solution as well!
