I have multiple master pages, I found that there is no problem with mater pages as I have tried applying different master pages for the page I am facing the problem, It showing ':' symbol in the place of the footer I tried checking the style (Paragraph or character) of that particular symbol but there is no problem with it.

Hi gkthota333,

if only the ":" symbol is visible it means that the text variable will not pick up any contents.

 

Please double-check if there is something on the document page that actually can be picked up by the text variable.

First check your text variable. Is a paragraph style defined for the text that should be picked up?

 

Is the right paragraph style applied to the text on your page?

Does the text perhaps contain any special characters?

XML tags perhaps, something that could irritate the text variable?

 

Also move on and back to another spread in your document, enforce a redraw of the document, save, close the document. Even quit InDesign and come back to your document.

 

And just test your text variable on a new document.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
