I have written a book of collected articles which I grouped in a master document. All articles are based on the same template as master document itself. Every article starts with a First page style and a HEADING 1. I have written other books, with different templates, and never had this problem. This time I do not seem able to have a continuous page numbering; for the first page of a new chapter at the very bottom line of the odm I find for instance Page 7 of 660 (page 1) ant then at the next one: page 11 of 660 (page 1) Obviously the index starts all the chapters at 1 please help as I was not able to find a solution online.

In the master document, verify the Heading 1 paragraph style▸Text Flow tab▸BreaksPage Number: must be 0 to have continuous numbering.
