Close all documents
Go to Edit > Preferences
Find Keyboard Shortcuts in the list on the left
Find the "Insert" option down the list at right
Edit the Shortcut for Page Number (or at least check what it is and 
try with this one)

The procedure you describe is fine. You are only missing the Page 
Number shortcut.
