I am thinking of starting a new business and hence wanted to learn more about it.
Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this forum. I am looking forward to actively participate in discussions.

Currently, we insert a one-row, two-column table at the top of the first (body) page of each chapter. The left column is autonumbered and the right contains the chapter title (Heading1). I'm updating our templates and thought it would save time if Master Page First included that table. I figured we wouldn't be able to type the title in the Heading1 column on the body page but could do so in master page view, but that's academic now, because the table doesn't even show up at all.

After searching the forum, I've read a few related but seemingly contradictory items. One post says "the Apply Master Page function ignores paragraphs in tables" but another post advises someone to "make a landscape Master Page to hold tables".

Can I do what I'm trying to do and if not, can anyone suggest a workaround?

Thanks as always,
