I was playing around with restarting page numbering. One of the methods inserted a page break in the first paragraph of the page where numbering should restart. This resulted in a blank page before that page. I tried to delete the page break and the extra page.
The result is that the page numbering now misses a page. Oddly, the missing page is the page after (not before) the page I wanted to restart numbering on. So, the numbering now goes from page 5 to page 7 with no page 6. The page style is Default, with settings for different footers on odd and even pages. No other even pages are missing.
I don’t understand why page 6 now thinks it is page 7 and would appreciate some insights about what causes this and how to fix it.
