I have a document that I'm struggling with as a lack of foresignt on my part. I have both special figure pages as well as inline figures.
The figure pages are numbered, and now I want to add figure numbers to the inline figures. When I generate a static caption, apply a figure number paragraph style, and edit the static text to be a description of the figure, it works, and the numbering is correct.
If, however, I then attempt to anchor either the caption by itself or the figure+caption group in the text, the item becomes Figure 1 and renumbers the rest of the document.
All I want to do is add a figure number that's grouped with the figure so it moves with the text.
Figure numbering works by the order they are within a single frame.
Then it works by sorting out which frames were created first.
If you're grouping a figured text frame with another item then it becomes stuck to that order of creation, thus removing your automatic numbering and renumbering everything.
While that makes sense, I don't understand why the numbering works as I want it to until I anchor the frame or grouped frames. While that will work for this release, this is a manual that will be updated. Without having those inline figures and captions anchored in the text, future updates will be a giant pain.
When you anchor the frame it behave just like text.
So no that numbering is sitting within a frame created before.
