John, As much as I've tried, the <$chapnum> variable just doesn't want to insert on the reference page. You have to type it once, then you can copy/paste.
I've copied a chapter title line from one of my reference pages, works every time. I removed the character that separated the chapter number and the text. You can use what ever your style guide calls for. Chapter <$paranumonly> <$paratext> You don't need to specify the paragraph tag since you set that up when you first generate the TOC. Karen L.
