Hi Bob: You don't have to break the book into separate chapters for chapter/appendix/figure/table numbering. That can be handled by setting up the paragraph formats to work together. Some examples are online at http://www.travelthepath.com/autonum.html .
The only "have to" reason for breaking into separate files is that you can't have roman and arabic page numbers within a single file. If you want me to walk you through some of the paragraph numbering, or breaking into 2 files in a small book, give me a call. Hope all is going well with you, .K. -----Original Message----- From: Robert Kern All, I have a very short book (about 180 pages) that is multiple chapters but is currently a single Frame file. I'd like to keep it as a single file, but am uncertain how to apply chapter-like chapter/figure/table numbering and page numbering if things are in a single file. How would I go from roman to arabic numbering as I leave the from matter and enter the first chapter? How would I increment the chapnum value at the start of each chapter? Probably the only good answer is to break the book un into separate files, but hoping there might be a slick use of markers as an easy work around. -bob Robert Kern President, TIPS Technical Publishing, Inc. 108 E.
