Consider this image:
As you can see I am having difficulties with the page numbering. The left page is 15 (section 2) as it should, but the right one is 2 (section 4). What I think that happened:
By inserting a multi-column lay-out at the bottom of the left page, that page is divided into three sections. At the top section 2, then the multi-column (section 3) and at the bottom the section after the columns (section 4).
Because section 2 is force-started at 1 (as it should) and new sections by default link to the previous one, section 3 (the multi-column) 'thinks' it has a page number as well. Because it is linked to the previous section (2) it starts again at page number 1. Then, of course, section 4 follows which I can edit freely. The problem is that I cannot seem to edit the "invisible footer" of section 3 so that it is NOT linked to section 2 anymore and that I can allow it to let it continue its numbering from the previous section.
How can I do this? I've been struggling with this for days but can't get it to work.
I hope that my explanation is clear.
