Hello, I am having a problem where the space before margin as shown in Figure chapter 1 below is not working on other chapters title as in Figure chapter 2 shown below. I am using the same text style with the same gap.

 

Chapter 1Chapter 1Chapter 2Chapter 2

Spacing Before will be suppressed at the top of a page except when the page also starts a new Word section.

 

What you can do is insert a section break between each chapter. There are also other workarounds, such as adding frame formatting to the heading style.
