Harro's solution works perfectly as long as your document
is set up with each chapter in one or more separate files.
(If you have chapters that are split across multiple files,
it's by far the best approach.)

But if you have more than one chapter in a file you cannot
use the $chapnum system variable because that variable
can only increment on file boundaries. If you need to use
files that contain more than one chapter, you'll need to
use paragraph numbering counters for *all* of the
elements in the numbering scheme. For example:

H:<n+>< =0>< =0>< =0>

Heading 1
H:<n>.<n+>< =0>< =0>

Heading 2:
H:<n>.<n>.<n+>< =0>

Heading 3:

And in this approach, it's important to note that the
Chapter tab in the Numbering properties sheet has *no*
effect because that tab only controls the behavior of
the $chapnum variable. In this approach, the Paragraph
numbering tab controls all parts of the heading numbering
and must *not* be set to restart the numbering in
any chapter except the first one.
