In InDesign’s term a "Chapter" is a whole INDD document regardless if you name your list Chapter.
When you join several INDD in an InDesign book file INDB each of these documents will become a chapter.
What you want to do, I think, is Paragraph numbering and therefore you can use the levels. You will have to insert the placeholder for the current level to increade the number.
BTW: Use the margin guides to position your text frames. Your text frames are hanging around in the air. Use the whole page between the guide lines and make your page set up correctly instead.
Thanks for the reply. It worked! Just to let the others know the placeholder mark is ^#
As you said, I thought a chapter was something inside the "book"
Is it possible to add this number to the headings? so i have like the "chapter" and the number there something like
1 | Getting Started
I already googled and couldnt find
You mean running/living headers? No, so far as I know, it is not possible to get the number automatically into the header. I wished it would be possible.
Not so easy.
What you could do is to create a frame (which could be anchored in the paragraph) with a cross reference, number of paragraph and a character style with no color. Create another text variable based on the character style and insert it here.
Sorry, I don't know an easier way. But I am sure it could be scripted.
Thanks!! Ill just skip that for now, another question, is it possible to make the heading just start from page 3 an ex. and not since 1 ?
