Unless you have modified the chapters, they're all in the default A flow. Assuming you want the table numberss to increment across chapter boundaries, try this: 1. Modify ONE of the para tags, say the one for tables, so that the autonumber string reads: T:<n+> 2. Save the file. 3. In the book file containing that chapter, select all additional chapters in which you want the table numbering to ripple. Don't select the one in which you made the change. 4. Right click and select Numbering. On the Paragraph tab, select Continue Numbering... and apply. 5. Still in the book file with the same set of files selected, pull down File > Import > Formats. Specify the source file as the file in which you modified the tag. Import Para formats into all the other chapters. 6. Save the book file. 7. Hold down the Shift key and pull down the File menu. Select Save All Files in Book. 8. In the Book file, click the update icon. Check the numbering.
Assuming it works, repeat for figures, but specify a different autonumber string in the chapter file.
