You don't need a special paragraph format for initialisers ( <n=1> , <a=1> ). Suppose three paragraph formats, ProcedureHeading, Step, and SubStep. Then set up these numbering builders in the Numbering tab of the Paragraph Designer dialogue: ProcedureHeading < =0>< =0> Step <n+>< =0> SubStep < ><a+> The ProcedureHeading then automatically resets Step and SubStep numbering to zero. The Step then resets SubSet numbering to zero. The first Step _after_ a ProcedureHeading will be numbered 1, and subsequent steps will increment. The first SubStep after a ProcedureHeading or a Step will be numbered 'a', and subsequent steps will increment. The article at < http://www.microtype.com/resources/articles/AUTONUM_DE.PDF> expands on the above notion to encompass chapter, section, figure, and table numbering, completely eliminating initialisers and allowing all numbering to be in a single number flow.
