I have a long document I am working on--about 250 pages. It is divided into sections. I am using the "left page and right page are different" function in each section, and not using the previous headers and footers--each are unique for each section. On page 85, right in the middle of a section, the footer suddenly dissappeares. I made no changes in layout in that section. Using inspector, I have verified that all the settings remain unchanged.

 

Any idea why the footer would randomly dissappear, and what I can do to restore it?

 

thanks!

    If you intermittently uncheck the document from using the "left page and right page are different" function will the footer appear?

    Or is it just that you haven't added anything in the footer in that section on that right page?

    Your description confirms a behaviour some have seen when having may pages in a document with facing pages and show left and right page differently. Or it could be a corrupted document which often is rectified by copying the content of the document and paste it into a new blanc one.
