There's no such thing in FM as a "Part document type," there are only chapters (.fm files) and books (.book files). If you're putting the Part title page in its own chapter (.fm file), then the paratext from its pgfs isn't available in subsequent chapter files. In order for the Running H/F in a chapter file to display the text of a Part pgf, that pgf must be in the file. As Art noted, you can use the Volume Number variable for your part numbers. But if you want to display a part title in all the chapters in that part, you'll have to use a workaround (listed in descending order of preference, IMHO, and excluding my first choice, which would be not to do this at all): -- Create a Part Name user variable, with a different definition for the chapters in each part. -- Use a cross-reference to the Part pgf in the headers, with different xrefs (and thus master pages) for the chapters in each part. -- Create a tiny, invisible (white text) pgf containing the part name somewhere in each chapter file. -- Put all the chapters in a part into the same FM chapter (.fm) file, and use old-style (pre-v.6) numbering for chapter numbers.
