Home / Total page number disappeared


I don’t know what I did, but the total number of pages stopped showing on the menu bar (see screenshot below). Can anyone tell me how to get it back please? Thank you!


The correct view should be the following:


its related to invert setting as its now light foreground colour shade on light background. If you pressed the i key in pre-release then pressed it again after swich back to normal it will stick that way for a while until a Refresh, similar with manually altering from TextColor = #000000 in Advanced settings. It should usually return to normal if settings are not altered.

In an extreme case you could try closing SumatraPDF and then re-starting SumatraPDF from the cmd line using something like
"C:\ the path to \SumatraPDF\SumatraPDF.exe" -set-color-range #000000 #ffffff

That text colour is controlled by windows system so also check in advanced settings that
UseSysColors = false


I see. I did set the reader to open in inverted color mode (\<path>\SumatraPDF-3.2-64.exe" -set-color-range #ffffff #222222), and that must be why.

Is it possible to have inverted color but still with visible page numbers?
