Is there a way to set the reference field in the upper left hand corner to display the page number instead of the scripture reference? I’m reading a commentary and for note taking (and reference purposes) I want to be able to view what page I’m on rather than what reference section I’m in.

Click on it and you should get a drop down showing you your available options.

All I seem to be able to do is click on the menu and open the navigation/go to options. When I clock on the actual reference I can just type in something different. What am I missing?

I think it should be in the Mobile forum...

"Leviticus: An Introduction and Commentary (Sklar)" is not a Faithlife ebook.

Unfortunately, I answered for the desktop/web application. I don't know for mobile.

I can't see anyway of switching to page number view in the mobile app

You can get the page numbers to show in mobile (I tried iOS) by switching the view.  Go to the 3 dots on top right and go to view settings.  Turn off scrolling view and set columns to 1.

Yes I looked at that.

But as far as I can see once you move off the page you were on when switching the mode, the display reverts back to showing passage information and there is no option to restore the page number view.

Or am I missing something?

Yes Graham that is true.  It is definitely goofy when it comes to commentaries because it prefers the verse range instead.  Best way I could get it was what you and I saw.  Keep flipping pages until a page number appears.  Once you have a close page number than you can always type "page x" into the locator bar and keep guessing... you'll find it eventually. :)

Correct - it is a Logos book, but I'm reading in Faithlife to try to find a reasonable way to read books cover:cover from my Logos library and was hoping some things like syncing to last page read, and reading with page numbers might be easier in the ebook app.

in the ebook app.

All of the mobile "Reader" apps use the same engine. They are more alike than not. The FLEB app is more of a "less featured" app.
