A key point that many people initially miss is that when the numbering of some paragraph formats needs to interact (e.g. if a caption style needs to include the numbering of its parent section, or if a heading needs to reset the numbering of its subsections) all of those paragraph formats must use the *same* series label. As I remember, Eva's numbering includes chapter, volume, and section numbers in the numbering of her figures, so all of those tags must use the same numbering series. As I remember, Eva's template was not using a series label, so that *all* numbering in the document will potentially interact with itself, which is a potential maintenance nightmare. But since *some* of the numbering needs to interact, it's likely that any ad hoc attempt to define some series labels will cause more problems than it fixes. In my experience, the *only* way to resolve the kind of situation Eva is facing is to get someone competent to redesign the template with a rational numbering scheme. Just my $.02... -Fred Ridder
