Forget it. You could work around the pgf numbering issues (figures, etc.), but there's no reasonable workaround for page numbering. A single file will have pages numbered consecutively throughout. There's no way to stop and restart page numbering, much less change the numbering format. You're trying to work against one of FM's greatest strengths and the way it's intended to be used. Doesn't your book need at least a table of contents? There are no advantages and many disadvantages to having the entire book in one file. That's true regardless of the book size. And 180 pages isn't that small; I maintain several manuals that are under 100 pages, and each is an FM book containing at least 6 or 8 files. Separate each chapter into its own file. Create a book file and put all the chapters into it. Add a title page file, the appropriate generated list files (TOC, LOF, etc.), preface, etc. Manage the numbering using the book numbering tools (chapnum variable, file-by-file page numbering settings, etc.). Life will be a lot simpler. Or, if you really want just one file -- use Word. ;-) HTH! Richard ------ Richard G.
