Description Ulrich Windl 2021-02-18 11:30:40 UTC
I selected text worth two pages in a longer document. The selection was not at the end of the document.
The document had a footer showing <<"current page" / "total pages">>.
When printing the two pages, the footer on both pages said << 136 / 136 >>.
Comment 1 Ulrich Windl 2021-02-18 11:33:24 UTC
The selection would correspond to a range from <<130 / 136>> up to <<131 / 136>>, just for clarity.
Comment 2 [REDACTED] 2021-02-18 12:15:32 UTC
Use "130,131" under "Pages" in section "Range and Copies" of the print dialog and you should get the correct numbering of pages as "130/136" and "131/136"

I'm not sure whether this is a bug or solely due to the fact that you try to print a text "selection" (confirming that your description is correct for this case on

Comment 3 Ulrich Windl 2021-02-18 14:28:38 UTC
When I wrote "text worth two pages" I mean that the section selected did not align with whole pages.  So printing the two pages that contain the selection would be a work-around, but still a different thing.
So what did I expect: Either seeing the original page and total numbers, but as the text got "re-flown" to start at the top of the first page, seeing <<1 / 2>> and <<2 / 2>> is probably what I should expect.
Probably there is no perfect solution, but showing two identical page numbers probably not the best alternative.

Looks like a duplicate. 
If not, please explain why. 
Rule of thumb is search before reporting. 
Another best practice is to attach minimal sampke.
