I am currently updating a couple of manuals that have originally been converted from PDF.

Sometimes, the automatic numbering in the footers is fine. More often than not, I have to create it. No problem. However, several times I have come across the situation that Word insists that there are two even-numbered pages in a row.

If I separate the section from the previous one, I should (theoretically) be able to add any starting page number for this section. However, whatever starting number I enter, Word always adjusts it to an even number.

The page before is C-28. I can have the next page be C-30 or C-124 or whatever even number, but not C-29 or C-123.

Does anyone have any ideas how to handle this issue? What causes it?

Thanks!
Heike

Section breaks Dec 2, 2011

It is most probably caused by the type of the section break - here it is set as "Even page section break". Just insert a normal section break just before and remove the even page break.

It wasn't the type of section break, just a missing break of any sort to really separate it from the last section break, which indeed was an even page break. I just never looked that far up.

Thanks!!!
