I have a continuous section break that refuses to delete under normal circumstances: placing the cursor before it and hitting delete, placing the cursor after it and hitting backspace, highlighting and hitting either backspace or delete...nothing.

The only way I can get the section to go away is to delete everything before it all the way to the beginning of the document; not something I want to do.

Somehow the section break was attached to the heading 1 immediately following it. Removing both allowed me to remove the section break and all I had to retype was the chapter title.
