Here is what I'm trying to do with FrameMaker and find impossible to do:
I have to maintain two sets of different tables each starts with number 1 inside the table. So I created two paragraph tags with 'Auto Number' checked and applied to the two different tables. But the result is not what I want: the number inside one table continues from the other one, instead of 1, 2, 3, 4, ... and 1, 2, 3, 4... It is 1, 2, 3, 4...
Am I doing anything wrong here? Must be, for it doesn not work.
Thanks for any help.
You're not doing anything wrong, just perhaps missing some of the details. FM autonumbering is a joy to work with once you've got the hang of it, and/but different from most other approaches. (and by "different", I don't just mean flexible and reliable)
Broadly speaking, I'd say you have two options:
While you're experimenting, read up on Series labels – so you can manage separate numbering for, say, tables and figures. And on Building blocks – I was so impressed the first time I managed to use numbered heading styles to reset numbering in a list …
