It also depends on what kind of book you're doing this on, and the
specification it involves. For instance, I am doing an Illustrated Parts
Breakdown (IPB) right now that is being numbered like #1, but only because
it is a standalone IPB. In some cases, this IPB could be Chapter 7 in an
even bigger book, which would be numbered like #2.

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.


Thanks,
