    So I know this should be very easy. I have a 285-page novel manuscript I'm formatting for submission. I have page numbers that start on the 3rd actual page, which is where Chapter 1 begins. I have a header but it only appears on those first two pages; it stops before Chapter 1. How do I have the header appear on every page of the doc? I googled it but it's confusing....it took awhile to get the page numbering right, because I wanted it to start where it does....I'm afraid if I mess with the header as it is, I'm in for more frustration. A simple step-by-step would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Look for the different "Sections" and make the header continuous for all sections following page 3

    Yeah, that's what confused me.....had the same issue with page numbering originally.....then got some help with it, and I understood that it's a different "section" after the first two pages, and it worked fine. I just did the same with the header, and now it's fine. I'll mark this solved, and THANK YOU.
