# Multi-level Numbered List Problem

I have this situation:

I working in Book, with separated chapter per document.

My chapter number is using roman numeric.

I want to make my multi-level list (2nd,3rd level and so on) use that chapter number, as normal number.

But the result is:                IV.1

Instead what I want is:      4.1

Can I convert that roman numeric (IV) to normal numeric (4) ?

Or is it any alternatives to numbering multilevel list that restart in each chapter?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Check out those 2 points:

1. Document numbering options:

Style (Document Chapter Numbering) : must be set up as "1,2,3,4,..."

2. Variable: Chapter Number:

must be set up as "I,II,III,IV,..."

When creating your multi-level lists, just add the chapter number symbol (^H).

It should be formatted as seen in point 1.

Let us know if this solved your problem.

Hi vinny, I think you're right, but can you tell me exactly where should I set that on the menu?

Thanks!

Wow, french! haha but i could get it.

I've tried to edit list like in your 2nd image but I didn't have that option.

Here's what I got:

Where I can find option like you have?

Not in the list panel.

Choose Type > Text Variables > Define.

Oh thanks now I'm understand!

So the chapter name is not actually a list right?

Is there will be a problem when I want to make TOC ?

No problem with generating a TOC.
