Creating Parts or Volumes in FM Book Files

Jul 19, 2012 11:41 AM



I need to create part or volume numbers (in Roman numerals) in a FM book file without impacting the chapter number increments. The Part/Volume sections are on their own pages separating book file chapters. I created a "Part" tag with a new flow. The part roman numerals increment fine but the chapter numbers are impacted and are not continuous. See the example:


Chapter 1: Introduction

Chapter 2: Device Configuration

Part I: Installation

Chapter 4: System Requirements

Chapter 5: etc.

Part II: Contacting Support

Chapter 7: etc. etc.

Chapter 8: etc. etc. etc


These are the elementsI use:

ChapterNum tag: H:Chapter <$chapnum>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>

AppendixNum tag: A:Appendix <$chapnum>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>

Part tag: B:Part <$volnum>: < =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>


Can someone provide input why this is not working?


Thank you,

    Instead of using the ChapterNum tag and AppendixNum tag ,just use the normal format as <n+> and a \t like you do narmally making sur when you put in that you do like H:<n+> and when you create one for volumes or any other you use some building blocks starting with a different alphabet like B:<n+><\t><\t>.

    Its just an example ,you can use you own and then apply it .
