Here we have a situation where want our chapters always to start on a new page and this is a very common situation and very easily addressed. If we page down in this document, and on page 7 we get to Chapter number II. Now we want this to start on a right-hand page. You can manually enter a page break, and occasionally that may be a preferable thing to do. But typically, you want to include this as part of the Paragraph Style options.
So, if I were to manually enter it, here is how I would absolutely not do it and that is by just pressing multiple Carriage Returns. That is always going to come back and bite you and you're never going to get a good result from doing it that way. A much preferable way would be to come to the Type menu and choose Insert > Break a Character > Page Break and since I want this to begin on a right-hand page, I would need to do that twice. But better than both of those solutions is assuming I've used Paragraph Style, which of course I have.
I can come and edit the Paragraph Style. It's called chapter number. Right-click on that to edit it and then come to my Keep Options and just change Style Paragraph from Anywhere to On Next Odd Page. Click OK and now we have Chapter II starting on page 9 and Chapter III starting on page 15 etcetera and that's going to solve that issue throughout the entire book wherever we have the chapter number style applied that's always going to start at the top of the right-hand page.
