Have downloaded the trial version of Sections stuff. I’m wondering whether there is a way to get it to automatically restart the numbering of each new section from page 1 rather than automatically continue?
Right now, not. You can set the 2nd section in the document to start at 1 (the idea being that after the preliminary pages of the book that are numbered with roman numerals, the main section, numnbered with arabic numerals, would normally start at 1).
But there is currently no way to control the remaining sections in the document — they will all be set to “continued” numbering.
It’s a good feature request though.
