I do option 1, although I have used option 2 in the past. I don't particularly like option 3.
You can do option 2 quite easily. Assuming unstructured FM, you develop a paragraph format for figure titles. The autonumber pattern is F:Figure <$chapnum>-<n+>.\sm Once you have that set, ensure that Format > Document > Numbering Paragraph tab is set to restart paragraph numbering with each chapter.

Figure 1,2,3 2. Figure 1-1, 1-2, ...2-1, 2-2 3. Figure 1-1...3-10...5-30 Currently, the book I am updating does #3. It stops counting at figure 325 and then starts at 1 again. I want to do number 2, so I want the Figure numbering to start over at the beginning of each chapter. How do I do this? If you guys know of a better method, tell me what you do.
