Flare question: inserting document title in document header (Word Output)

I am setting up the page layouts in Flare for Word output. I have three
separate page layouts: one for the title page, one for the TOC/ front
matter, and one for the body of the document. In the front matter and
body of the document, I want the document title to appear in the header
on each page. Flare provides Heading variables for H1 through H6. I
created a variable for the document title
(<$paratext[printCoverTitle]>), but either nothing prints in the header
or the definition for the variable (not the document title) prints in
the header. The variable is saved in the Primary variable set. Can
anyone offer a solution to my problem? One more piece of information: I
need to reuse the page layouts for many documents, so I don't want to
type the doc title in the header of the page layout.

I appreciate any help!
