Hi: You need to protect chapter headings whether page numbers are at the top or at the bottom. It's easier if numbers are at the top because you just add the page number. I usually put asterisks if page numbers are at the bottom. There is a tip on Jake's site that explains it in detail. In order to protect chapter titles, and other section headings such as prologue, epilogue, interlude, part, etc. from being removed by the stripping tool, I found that the following works: 1. If page numbers are at the top of the page, add the proper sequential page number and leave a blank line between the number and the title you want to protect. If there already is a page number at the bottom of the page move it to the top. 2. In cases where all page numbers are at the bottom of the page, add the title or author to the top of the page, followed by a blank line so that that page matches the format of the other pages. ----- Original Message ----- From: Jamie Yates, CPhT To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, December 27, 2007 6:35 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Chapter headings, am confused Ann, only if your page numbers are at the bottom of the page do you need to protect the chapter headings.
