Hello

 

I'm having a problem where I have set up automated page numbering in my document, but my problem is that i have some images covering the entire page and I'd like to change the color of the pagenumber specifially on that page, is there a way for me to do that other than just adding a new text layer over the image?

Nevermind, found a solution, just making another master page with the pagenumbers in the different color works well enough.

Create a new master page. You can name it something like "Page Number with Image."

For numbers in another color create a parent page based on the first parent page and change the paragraph style used her to another color. But avoid overriding the page number on the normalpages.

You can override the page number text frame and change the text color. To override an element, Command Shift click [Mac], Ctrl Shift click [Windows] on it.

Work with layers. Dedicate a layer for page numbers, running headers and footers on top over all other layers.
