Found a minor bug. To duplicate: Go to compile - edit format Within Section Layouts, go to the New Pages tab. Check the box for either "Always start section on" or "Start next section on" You may select "a recto page" or "a verso page" in the drop down menu. Save the settings. Go back in, the checkbox has been saved, but the drop down selection is blank. The selection is also not reflected in the compiled output.
I can work around this for now by inserting blank pages manually.
