It sounds to me like you have the book file has the numbering properties set to restart the paragraph numbering in each chapter files. It's important to remember that numbering properties set in the book file (by highlighting components in the book window, then right-clicking and shoosing Numbering Properties in the context menu) override any settings that are made in the individual files so that you can use the same component files in multiple books that may have different numbering setups.
And are you remembering to execute the Update Book command to refresh all the numbering after you make any changes in the book-level numbering properties? The numbering does not update on the fly when you chang ethe setup; you must explicitly tell FrameMaker to perform the update. -Fred Ridder >From: William Abernathy <william at inch.com> >To: framers at lists.frameusers.com >Subject: Paragraph numbering issue >Date: Mon, 09 Jul 2007 11:07:09 -0700 > >All: I'm having a difficult time finessing this one, and I think I need >someone to help me come at it from a different angle.
