I'm typesetting a large book with tables. I want to put many of the tables in separate frames to avoid page breaks. I would prefer to not set them all in separate frames in the interest of time. The problem is that the captions are numbered paragraphs. I have learned that paragraph numbering is done by frame and not by order on the page. As a programmer I understand why, but it's causing major problems for me. If I only need to set the first table in a frame, it is counted last. The only solution I've found is to set every single table in a separate frame and to create them in order. In chapters with lots of tables, this is a major headache. Is there not a way to move a frame upstream or downstream (meaning forcing a frame to be counted before or after another)? Please say there is!
Thanks for your help!
Thank you for your reply! The problem is that the text won't flow to fill in the extra whitespace created before the table. I use the frames to keep the text flowing consistently around the tables and figures.
