I've got a fairly simple FrameMaker 7 document (one file, 94 pages) that requires page numbers to follow the Chapter No. - Page No. format (e.g., 3-2). Two issues occur: 1) the chapter number stays at 1, and 2) the page number increments by one when I need it to restart after every new chapter.
My paragraph tags are like this:
I think I've identified a disconnect: the heading numbering is as follows (thanks to Deborah Snavely for explaining the matrix approach):
<n+>< =0>< =0>< =0>< =0>< >< >\t
where n+ is the heading number, followed by four subheadings. The last two bracket sets are for figures and tables, respectively. I set the page numbering in the master pages as follows: <$chapnum>-<$curpagenum>. Chapter/paragraph numbering works as advertised, as do figure and table numbers. How do I change the page number variables to match the chapter number and restart the page numbering?
You need to set the appropriate numbering behaviours in the book file for each of the chapter files.
Thanks, Arnis. That solved it. You know, I read the books, I read help online, and I still tripped over that detail...
