The master page footer is not uniformly applied to the pages. Page 1 lacks the chapter title but has the correct chapter number. All the rest of the pages have both chapter number and title, but show the chapter number as 2. I have updated the numbers in the book panel but to no effect.
Check numbering and section options>document chapter numbering, it may be you need to change setting.
Thanks, I did that but it did not help. I have been messing with this first chapter for so long there may be a lot of conflicting instructions embedded that have not been cleared.
