Summary0000724: No left aligned page numbers
DescriptionWhen inserting page numbers, if the current page number has less digits then the placeholder, it will always use the right-most slots for the number.

For example, consider a 3-digit page number ###. On page 5, this will result in __5 (where _ represents a space), even if the text is left-aligned although 5__ would be much more desirable - when a document requires the page numbers to be aligned with the left hand margin, for example.
Steps To Reproduce* Create a template that features page numbers with at least 2 digits, in a left aligned text-box
* Use the template for the first 12 pages and see the error described above
Additional InformationThere is a work-around for this problem, but it is very time consuming and I hope that this gets fixed fast. A possible solution is taking the final document, and using different templates for pages 1-10, 11-99 and 100-999. Depending on the number of templates, this can be a very time consuming task though.
