Create a specific master for that and apply it.
Good idea, but those very same pages are marked as new sections, so the continuous # flow alignment from there onward is messed up. Meaning, now I've got numbers placed at the spine rather than on the outer edges. I've been trying everything to get around this issue. Sure, some of them work-out by coincidence, but others not.
Any other ideas? My guess - do I have to set up yet another section marker for the second page after the chapter page? To help kick off the re-flow? Kind of tedious though. Would it even work?
master pages are not related to section starts.
Some screen shots would be very helpful here.
Dividers are not to be numbered. Don't even want them to counted as a number. Want them completely ignored.
The first page following each divider will fall on the right because book will be spiral bound. I set up sections for each of these to define the pickup page # (so divider doesn't affect it). But, I now also want the page # on each of these first section pages to fall at the right-hand corner of page. - - All good and well if you layout on a master and drag to these pages.
Guess what - that then does not control the remaining positioning flow of the #s for subsequent pages in the mix, so a page following that first chapter page may also have the page # on the right ... which should auto re-flow to be on left. - How do I take control of that?

You should be using facing pages with a two-page master for normal numbered pages, mirroring the numbering left and right. If all your chapter start pages are right hand, you may not need a special master page if you assign a number to the last left-hand page before your dividers so all of your right hand pages are odd and all the lefts are even. It sounds to me as if you are ending some chapters on the right, and not including the blank left page that precedes the divider.
-That is correct about some ending on the right. And that is OK for this particular purpose / this project.
Book will be spiral bound too.
I think you are missing the point. all pages have two sides, as does a divider. Every chapter should therefore have an even number of pages, even if the last one is blank, and your dividers, if you are including then in the same doc, should also be two pages (front and back of the sheet).
If I understand well: all pages numbers are placed at the spine but the op wants the Chapter page number on the right side!
No, I think this is a case where all numbers should be away from the spine, and the masters just aren't set up properly.
Sorry! Really no sense for me!
This is happening, as far as I can tell, when a single page is being added. If the master page was a two-page spread with mirrored numbers it wouldn't happen.
The op says (post#1):
"How do I make page # on first page of each chapter section align to bottom right hand side of the page.
If facing pages are set up in InDesign? - How can I force that alignment property onto those specific #s?"
So, for me, it's what I said!
Of course, the master pages need to be well prepared as you say!
… but, if the number pages are on the spine, what trick could say ID to placed the Chapter page number "off"?
