I have a strange problem making a book in IDCS6 (mac mountain lion version). Using the manual I choosed New/book. Then one has to import the different chapters. Automatically the pagenumbering takes place. That is right with CS5 and CS5.5, but not in CS6! After the second chapter, chapter 3 starts again with numbering continuing from the page next to the last page of chapter 1.
So Chapter 1 p. 1-10, Ch.2 11-20, Ch.3 11-20 etc.
Contacting Adobe support we tried to solve the problem in several sessions, but didn’t succeed. The Adobe support in the Netherlands told me that they sent the problem to the devellopment team in India. This team reacted only with a poor “ follow the instructions of the manual”. That’s exact what we (Adobe support en I) did ten times or so with everytime new created chapters.
Is there anyone who recognizes this problem in CS6?

This indicates that the numbering is not proeprly set to continue automatically someplace. You must set both the Book Page Numbering Options (from the flyout menu in the Book panel) AND the individual document Numbering and Section Options (either from the document Pages panel or from the Book panel flyout menu with a document selected) to automatic and continue from previous page.
No result. What is strange that is that in CS5 and 5.5 the pages numbering in the bookpanel changes already while importing a new chapter, CS6 doesn't. So I think the problem starts there already. Action with the flyout Page numbering options afterwards have no result. So you see no changes at all in the bookpanel, although in de pdf the numbering of chapters 1 and 2 is correct. Ch.3 follows again Ch1. I tried also a Ch4. That gives the same result.
You can try trashing your prefs (see Replace Your Preferences), but I don't think that's the problem, nor is there a general problem with book page numbering in CS6, so it's something that you've set incorrectly, or a step you've missed. Did you update the numbering after adding the files?
Yes I updated the numbering. But I cannot imagine which settings should be wrong. I even uninstalled and reinstalled CS6 with a new download from Adobe and I made the book in accordance with the official (english) guide from Adobe. But I will look further, of course.
