<slap_forehead />Of course! David mentioned needing both the part number
and name, so it didn't occur to me that you could combine the two, if
you didn't mind hard-coding the number as part of a text string. 

On the Volume tab of Numbering Properties, set Volume # to (for
instance) "Part 1 Getting Started," and Format to Text. 

If you move a chapter (or rearrange the parts), you'll have to manually
change the numbering, but this workaround goes at the top of my list.
Thanks for straightening me out, Art! :-)
