Default Can't change Page Number in header in new section

Hello,
I've got a template set up with pages 1, 2, and 3 each as a separate section. There is page numbering in a header that starts in the third section; I want the page numbering to start at "2". It now starts at "3", and no matter what I do, it will not change.



I've looked at "Different first page" settings, odd and even pages settings. I'm stumped... Can anyone help?

Page Number > Format Page Numbers


Be aware that if you start another section from this one, the page numbering will restart again and you may end up back here.

In the Page Setup dialog box, change the "Section type" to "Even page" for the third section. To display the dialog box, you can double-click anywhere on the vertical ruler (or you can double-click the upper part of the horizontal ruler).

You can then restart the numbering in the Page Number Format dialog box, as Charles suggested.
