Default Even page numbers disappear when setting up opposite headers.

I am working on a book where in section 3, I want opposite headers. The author's name on left and title on right. When I set up the headers, it screws up my page numbering and my even pages disappear. Can someone help?



More details: Section 1 is no page numbers, section 2 is prologue, page 1-9, which numbers fine, and sect three is Chapt 1. Chap 1-19 is numbered sequentially. All the numbering is correct until I setup the headers, and select different first page and select different even and odd pages, all the even page numbers disappear. Can someone help?

Thanks for your help in advance.

That is because the page numbers are part of the header/footer. Different even and odd applies to both headers and footers. Page numbers, in Word, are fields, generally in a header or footer (even if in the margins).

You need to duplicate the page numbering in your even header/footer. With different even and odd, people often position the page number on an outside corner of the page.
