Every time I go to number my pages with the Google Docs Insert "thing", it makes all of my page numbers say "1". I've tried to change it manually, but it changes together. If I replace the 1 on the second page with a 2, all of my pages say "2" at the top.

How do I fix it, or is this something that is supposed to happen?

though for testing I have only print viewed it: WA90976 second example
