Walden Miller asked about using styleref fields in headings of long document
"...I have multi-chapter books. Of course all in a single Word file.
Chapters are separated by section breaks. I use a Chapter style for the
first paragraph of each chapter/section. The first heading is what I call
FH1 (first H1). It does not start a new page and always appears directly
below the Chapter paragraph (albeit 300 points below). All subsequent H1s
in the chapter start a new page. I refer to Chapter and H1 in the headers.
There is no header on the first page of a chapter.... if the second page of
chapter does not start with an H1 heading, the first header of a chapter
refers to the last H1 of the previous chapter. If I was the only user of
the templates, I would just override the first H1 of the chapter and not
worry about it. "
I've done this, but to minimize confusion for other users of the templates,
I've only used the Chapter or Section Titles in the headers, not the
next-lower-level headings, partly for the problem you describe where the
introductory text or an illustration pushes the first H1 heading to the
second page. Have you considered just using the Chapter Title?
