I had a similar problem with numbering chapters. When I opened a file,
all of them said Chapter 1. Turned out that I had a template attached
to my document and had selected the Automatically Update Document Styles
checkbox. As a result, when I opened the document, it reverted to the
base styles. Once I deselected the checkbox, I was able to set the
chapter number and make it stick. This may be your problem as well.
