      What archive revision are you testing on? (See the version label in
      the footer, for example v0.8.13.8.)

      v0.8.21.3 and test-

      If appropriate, enter the URL of a page where the problem can be seen:

      What steps will reproduce the problem?
      1. Create a work with more than one chapter
      2. Wish to add a co-author to all chapters without having to separately add co-author
      to each chapter
      3. Find no way to do this

      What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

      It would seem logical that if one edits a work's metadata with the "Edit" button and
      chooses to add a co-author that that co-author would be added to all existing chapters.

      Instead, co-author is actually only added to the first chapter.

      Please use labels and text to provide additional information.

      There is an additional problem that on beta the co-author will appear to be added
      to all chapters. Both names appear with no "Chapter by Author1" notice on every chapter.
      However, if Author2 tries to edit a chapter other than chapter 1 (or possibly chapter
      2), it results in Error 500 (see AO3-2104 Closed ).

      Although Author2's name already appears under "Current Co-authors" on each chapter
      (both beta and test), editing each chapter and adding Author2 as a co-author will work
      to make Author2 actually a co-author on all chapters.
