    Can't find satisfactory post on starting 2nd+ procedures in the same topic at step "1"...

    kdeuler Level 1

      All-

       

      Can anyone recommend the correct use of Paragraph and/or list styles to achieve the following in a RH topic?

       

      Procedure X

       

      1) Step one of procedure x

      2) Step two of procedure x

      3) Step three of procedure x

       

      Procedure Y

       

      1) Step one of procedure y

      2) Step two of procedure y

      3) Step three of procedure y

       

       

      When using Paragraph sty.es set with autonumbering, I get this (note that the continuation of step numbering in Procedure Y...)

       

      Procedure X

       

      1) Step one of procedure x

      2) Step two of procedure x

      3) Step three of procedure x

       

      Procedure Y

       

      4) Step one of procedure y

      5) Step two of procedure y

      6) Step three of procedure y

       

       

      I'm looking for the ability to both continue numbering after inserting a non-numbered item (such as code sample or graphic, etc.) This appears to be the default behavior. AND, I want to be able to start separate procedures within the same topic at step 1.

       

      Postings on this subject on this formum seem inconclusive. Case in point:

      I used to the way unstructured Framemaker paragraph styles work, where you have an inititial paragraph style with numbering 1 (or a), for example, and subsequent steps use a style that adds 1 to the number of the prevous step style. But, there doesn't appear to be such a feature in RH? Please advise how you've created the numbering in multiple procedures in the same doc.

       

      Thanks in advance.
