1. You will have to define the chapter number first. a) Navigate to the Numbering Properties dialog box (Format > Document > Numbering). b) Click on the Chapter tab. c) Next to the Chapter #, enter the chapter number. d) From the Format dropdown, select Numeric (14) e) Click the Set button.
2. If you want a chapter number to be included as a part of each page number, you can insert the <$chapnum> variable in front of the page number from the Master page. So it will look like this: <$chapnum>-#. I'm going to assume that you know how to set up page numbers (using variables) from the Master page. Note: be sure to put the variables (<$chapnum>-#) on each of your Master pages.

From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Linda Garneau Sent: Wednesday, May 20, 2015 2:24 PM To: email@example.com Subject: Setting up page numbers that restart with chapter number Today I attempted the exercise to set up a variable for page numbering that restarts with each chapter number (1-1, 1-2, 1-3...2-1, 2-2, 2-3, etc.). I checked pages 355 and 356 in Matt Sullivan's book, Unstructured FrameMaker 11. On p. 355 after step 7 it says to see those sections for details. Where are those sections?? I checked the index and couldn't find it. Arrrrgghh!! I also ran through David Rivers' tutorial on Lynda.com, but he only provided the basics for setting up master pages with page number (p. 1, 2, 3, etc.). I haven't tried Google help yet, and not sure how to find this topic in the forum. My company does not want to pay for me to take a 3-day Framemaker class, and so I am on my own to learn this tool and figure everything out. Can any of you point me to: Framemaker training that doesn't cost more than $600 that can teach me both a thorough run of the basics and more advanced tasks like this? Web tutorials that address this topic? A simple, clear set of instructions on how to set up page numbering that restarts with each chapter number without corrupting the document? I'll take any advice you can spare-thanks so much!! :) Linda Linda Garneau Technical Publications Manager 1-561-622-4795 linda.garn...@crossmatch.com<mailto:linda.garn...@crossmatch.com> This message, including any attachments, may contain confidential, proprietary, inside and/or legally privileged information.
