Deirdre,

Do you have a working chapter or a template without flow problems?

If so, it may be easier to:

   - Save the working chapter as a new file.
   - Clean all the content out of the working chapter. Crl-a to select all,
   then Ctrl-x to cut.
   - Copy in the content from your problem file.
   - Put your cursor in the first flow, Ctrl-a then Ctrl-x.
      - Swap to the new file, and paste. Ctrl-v.
      - Back in the original, go to the next chunk of content and repeat,
      pasting that into the correct position.
      - Continue until your original source file is empty.
      - In the new file, import variables from your source file and tags and
      stuff if you need them. DON'T import the page layouts.
      - DON'T save the now-empty original, so you have a backup copy, just
      in case.

This is likely to be easier than trying to fix something if you're not sure
what's broken or how to repair it.
