    How to skip a document for chapter numbering in a book file?

    jeffg45492488

      Hello,

       

      I'm working on a book that has a file structure like this:

       

      - Introduction (which includes the publication information, etc.)

      - Chapter 1

      - Chapter 2

      - Chapter 3

      - etc...

       

      Each chapter is set up to automatically pull in the chapter numbers through a Chapter Number text variable. However, because of the introduction chapter at the beginning of the book, the Chapter 1 file is getting numbered Chapter 2.

       

      Is there anyway to tell InDesign to ignore the Introduction chapter, and start labeling the next chapter as Chapter 1? Or is there perhaps a better way to organize the files in a book?

       

      Thanks
