If the frame was locked you can select it but not change it. You can unlock it in
Properties (F2) after you select the frame.
You could also have locked the layer, in that case use the Layers (F6) to unlock it.
Another reason you cannot select it may be that you have selected a different layer,
IMHO you would be better off using version 1.3.8. Page numbers do not require
different instructions if over 9.
