Default Chapters in manuscript keeping moving from odd to even pages?

Hey guys, I've got a manuscript I'm working on and need the beginning of chapters to start on right side pages. But, for some reason, the pages keep flipping to the left side when I scroll down through them. In other words, I set it up so my chapter starts on page one and is on the right side (with two pages iin view) and when I attempt to scroll down to chapter 2, chapter one flips to the left pane and all the following chapters follow suit and stay on the left.

I have clear page and section breaks, so everything should stay in place, but it isn't. I have no clue. I've made sure that I have no empty space on the previous page, for the text to back up into, but the whole page still flips to the left. Ugh!

Any ideas.

Is this a (temporary) display issue or are you saying that the text changes (permanently)?
