You just need one variable field on the master page, based on a paragraph style that you will use only for the chapter headings. You can place the heading in a box just off the page, but in the bleed on the first page of your chapter. Having the chapter title once above the first page of the section (as long as it is touching the bleed), carries that title over to subsequent pages until another instance of that paragraph style is found.
Okay, I think I get this.
For my chapter headings, I use one for the chapter number, and a second for the subtitle. So, I would put my paragraph style for the subtitle on page one of the chapter up in the bleed, and it would grab that text to place in the right hand side header? Cool, I'll play with that now and post back if I got it working! Thanks.
And tried before posting and YES! 300 page novel, now with every chapter headed.
That was great. Really appreciate the fast reply!
You're welcome. Those sample pages are from a 200+ page catalog currently in progress, so I also appreciate every time-saver like this that I can find.
