Using Pages, I want consecutive page numbers from the 1st section break to the end.  With other section breaks in the document, that does not occur.  Any suggestions?

 

The OS version is 10.7.5

The Pages version is 4.3

The computer is an MacBook Pro


iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.3)

    Look in the Inspector palette > Layout tab > Section. Is Continue from previous section checked?

    Yes, that solved most of the problem.  How do I allow each section to have a unique header on the odd numbered pages (the right side of the page on a two-sided document) without Pages restarting the page numbers as each section starts?  It seems if you check "Use previous headers & footers" then the header for the prior section carries to the following sections.  If you uncheck it, the page numbers restart with each section.  Is there a way around this?

    fruhulda did say:

     

    Page Numbers > Continue from previous section

     

    which is independent of:

     

    Use previous headers and footers.

     

    Left and right pages are different

     

    is also another option in the same dialogue.
