    Incorrect chapter number in numbered lists

    mw341

      I'm having a problem with numbered lists within a paragraph style.

       

      What I want to achieve is fairly simple - within each chapter of a book, I want the figures to be listed as "Chapter.FigNumber" for example:-

       

      Chapter 1: Figure 1.1, Figure 1.2 etc

      Chapter 2: Figure 2.1, Figure 2.2 etc

       

      I have set up a paragraph style for figure references, using the following options:-

       

      The problem is that the program does not seem to recognize the correct chapter number, so instead of e.g. Figure 3.1 in Chapter 3, I get Figure 5.1. This applies to most chapters in the book, and the wrong chapter numbers are also non-sequential, e.g. Chapter 1 thinks it is Chapter 2, Chapter 2 knows it is Chapter 2, Chapter 3 thinks it is Chapter 5...

       

      I cannot understand where the code ^H in the above field is picking up it's information from. I assume that if I find this source and correct that, the numbering will then work.

       

      It cannot be the document title, as this is clearly labelled "Number - Title", nor can it be from the ordering of the documents within the Book function, as I have deliberately positioned the chapters such that "01 - Title" is the first document in the Book, and consecutively thereafter.

       

      The documents were not created by me, and the original author has over-engineered most of the features. It would not surprise me if he has created or altered a setting which defines the chapter number, and then has changed the way the chapters are ordered without undoing his original setting.

       

      Any suggestions appreciated.

       

      Thanks

          OK, I've answered my own question! But I will leave it here in case anyone else has the same problem.

           

          Within the "Pages" panel the original author had for some reason opted for these settings:-

          i.e. he had falsely set the chapter number to 5 when it should have been 3, and so on.

           

          Over and out!
