Running Headers to pull from previous page
Add the ability for a paragraph/character style to pull from previous page. Currently only given first on page and last on page. Need more options. example: chapter 1title is on page 1 and text crosses onto page 2. At the end of page 2 is the next chapter title, but need to be able to put the previous chapter header on page 2 as a running header.

Absolutely necessary. How can it be that I can't do "continueds" in InDesign?
This should definitely be an option, being so common in books.
YES!!! Definitely need this. We create directories with running country/state headers and need the left-hand pages to pull from the previous page. Right now it pulls in a new state/country if it falls later on the left-hand page, but that's the "last on page," which is the opposite of what we need.

I need this desperately! In listing names for commencement ceremonies, I need to be able to state what degree is continued from the previous page. Without the ability to pull the header from the previous page, this must be done manually. It makes no sense not to have this function attached to running headers!

Yes please, this would be an incredibly important additional feature!

While Adobe should be able to do this easily (I would think), to be able to say "…cont'd", as Rhiannon says, I read somewhere that there is (for now) and add-in that allows for this "last on page" text variable. Can anyone confirm (or not)?

This would be great, seems like an easy addition, too!

I need this too for my manuals, to assure readers can keep track of the chapters and subchapters there in. My manuals are about ways of working with software and files in our company and many topics are repeated but always in a different context. So it's important for the reader to keep track of this context - to see the whole picture.

Yes, this would be a really good idea for pages with a heading halfway down the page. I was hoping to use text variables to to automatically add headings like 'Section 5 Continued' to the top of a page where Section 6 starts near the bottom of the page.
