I'm working in a template with a hidden field under the chapter number. I removed Chapter 1 from the manual I'm working on and now need to change Chapter 2 to Chapter 1, etc. The file was also set up for the page numbers to include the chapter number. I can see that they are set up to pull from Heading 9. The chapter number text is not in Heading 9, so I think the numbering is pulling from this hidden field. When I right-click the hidden field, it has an option to renumber. I choose a new number, and it just seems to break. The chapter number in the page number complete disappears. So this must not be the right way. What should I try next?
