I am formatting a novel. Headers have p # author on the left page, and title p # on the right page, no header showing on the first page of each chapter. FIRST PAGE is the style being used for first page.
The rest of the pages of each chapter are DEFAULT PAGE. The headers do not appear on the 2nd page of each chapter (first default page). I have found I can insert them manually–however, whatever I put in a page 2 of chapter header appears on every page 2 of each chapter. This is a problem since some page 2’s need author and some need title.
I know I can solve this by editing the chapter heading style so that every chapter appears on the right hand page, so that doing the header on p 2 of a chapter will then always be correct. This will change the page count, however. I’ll do it if that’s the only answer, but would like to know
why is this likely happening,
how can I fix it?
