2017 Oasis page numbers?

Is there a way to get page numbers on the 2017 Oasis?

I sideload all of my books from Calibre. If I load the same books onto my 2016 Oasis and 2017 Oasis, the ones on the older Oasis have page numbers but the ones on the new one do not.

I don't remember ever having to do anything in particular to get them. Is it possibly the firmware version that's changed something? I keep wifi off so the older Oasis is still on version 5.81 while the new one has 5.9.2.

I wish I could combine my favorite hardware and software features from multiple Kobos and Kindles. Everything I want exists on one model or another but no one model has everything.

All my KO2 books are sideloaded from Calibre, and I see pages numbers as an option just as I did on my Voyage.

Thanks. I must have messed up a setting somewhere but I can't think where.

Yes, thanks. It wasn't in the cycle. It was also grayed out on the reading progress settings screen.

However, all is ok now. I wish I knew why.

Ignoring the adage that stupidity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results, I loaded on two more books (having changed nothing in the meantime). The two newly added books had page numbers but the previously loaded books remained pageless.

I removed all of the previously loaded books and reloaded them and they now have page numbers. I have no explanation other than gremlins.
