I have a book about 150 pages. I want each chapter to start at the top of a page (with a page break) and I want the page numbering to start at page 1 on the first page of Chapter 1. So far I can only do this if I put in manual page breaks at the start of each chapter. Because I need chapter 1 to have a manual page break with a page number start at 1 but I want the page numbers on all of the other chapters to just continue on.

If I put the page break in the chapter style then I can't start the page number at 1 on chapter 1.

I can have a special different chapter 1 style but then I can't use the chapter style to create the table of contents.

Is there anyway to have a page break in the chapter style and start page numbers at page 1 of chapter 1?

It seems a simple and obvious thing to want to do.
I'm using neooffice3.1 on mac 10.5.8

Yes you can. Put the cursor in the very first paragraph of the chapter, then Format - Paragraph.

Including your page break in the chapter heading style like you do is the perfect approach.

Thanks. I tried it and it worked. Didn't even have to do the paragraph thing, it just worked anyway. Not sure why it worked but this is better than manual page breaks.
