PAGE #S NOT VISIBLE AFTER AN RTF COMPILE

In the All Options section of Compile, I inserted page numbers into the footer. When I compile as a PDF the page numbers are visible, but as soon as I change the compile format to RTF I lose the numbers. Any help would be appreciated.

What tool are you using to inspect the RTF file?

What version of Scrivener do you have?

RTF opens in TextEdit and the Scrivener version is 2.6.

TextEdit doesn’t support a number of RTF features, I think including headers and footers. Please re-compile (TextEdit strips formatting it can’t show) and try opening in something like Word or LibreOffice.

PS If you are using Mac OS 10.9 or newer, I would recommend upgrading to Scrivener 2.9. It’s a free upgrade for all Scrivener 2.x users, has a lot of improvements and bug fixes, and is much more compatible with newer versions of the operating system.

Thanks for letting me know about the limitations of the program. Otherwise, I’d have felt like I was taking crazy pills.
