Thanks for the many replies. It is unanimous that FM is just giving a warning 
that the numbering of a document that also appears in another book has changed 
on  updating the current book. I understand that there is nothing that can be 
done to avoid that.

I would like the warning to just not appear as it becomes tiresome and is not 
useful at all.

Maybe it could be added to the list of Alerts that can be deactivated in the FM 

Have a good day,

Hi Stephen,

I don't think there is any way to avoid this. When you have a common document 
in your book, its page numbering will be set to how it was numbered the last 
time it was updated, either in the current book or any other book that it is 
contained in. That is where the mismatch may come from and FrameMaker is simply 
warning you about it. It should not be necessary to open the document and 
change its properties; when you update the book and dismiss the Inconsistent 
Numbering Properties dialog box, it should make the document's numbering the 
way it is supposed to be for that book.

Subject: Inconsistent Numbering Properties


This subject must come up regularly. I use the certain documents in several 
books. When I update those books I have Inconsistent Numbering Properties.

I open the documents that are named. I set their numbering properties as in the 
book. But the problem is then put to another document, or same one.

I only use documents within books. Is there some way to tell FrameMaker or a 
book to ignore the document numbering - use only the numbering done in the book.

It would be great to understand/solve this once and for all.

Thank you for any advice and have a good weekend,
