I have noticed that in some bibliographical styles, clippings do not record page numbers.  Page numbers are included in APA, but not in Chicago or SBL2.

Is there a setting I am missing or is this a bug?

Welcome Donald,

Donald Burke:
Is there a setting I am missing or is this a bug?

It is likely due to the style, type of resource (bible, monograph w/out page numbers, multi-contributors). If you can find the page number and an appropriate citation chart, you could add them manually. Note that page numbers are not required in every instance by a particular style.

Thanks, Dave, for your post.  I use Chicago and SBL (2nd ed) all the time and with the books (mostly commentaries) I am using, page numbers are required for footnote/endnote citations, but not bibliographies and reference lists.  What creates the impression that something is amiss is that if I export or print a selection from a book, the full citation that is given includes page numbers.  Yes, I could add the page numbers manually, but that would diminish the ease of use of the clippings document for me.  But again, thanks for your post.

Donald Burke:

Please post some examples to illustrate this.

In a clipping I have APA Style: 

Johnson, A. F. (1981). Revelation. In F. E. Gaebelein (Ed.), The Expositor’s Bible Commentary: Hebrews through Revelation (Vol. 12, p. 554). Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House.

From the resource Information page, I get:

Johnson, A. F. (1981). Revelation. In F. E. Gaebelein (Ed.), The Expositor’s Bible Commentary: Hebrews through Revelation (Vol. 12). Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House.

When I paste the text in Word I get:

Johnson, A. F. (1981). Revelation. In F. E. Gaebelein (Ed.), The Expositor’s Bible Commentary: Hebrews through Revelation (Vol. 12, p. 554). Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House.

Chicago and SBL both have the volume and page number in the Clipping.
