I have created a book from four documents. I can synchronize the styles amongst them, no problem. But I cannot make the documents following the first one continue the page numbers. I'm sure it is a very simple thing, but when I choose, in the book, to Update page numbers or update all numbers, nothing happens. I have done the usual thing of closing everything down, restarting; I have created a new book and added the files again. Nothing happens.
Using CS6, Mavericks on new MBP.
Make sure the individual documents have the section and numbering options set to automatic page numbering, and fom the book panel flyout menu choose Book Page Numbering Options... and set to Continue From Previous Document.
