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.

Subject: Figure numbering

How do you guys do figure numbering? 

1. 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.
