As the question relates to a document with continuous numbering I think that the overall book should be updated first in order to get the page numbers correct. Then the section TOCs can be updated. If a section is done first how can it take into account page count changes in front of it?

Re: Section TOCs

2008-11-13 Thread Art Campbell
Good question. The numbering properties in the Section books need to be set to use the existing value in the component files, a value that is set by the parent book. But the parent book doesn't require an update action because the page / figure / table numbers are dynamic in the component files.

If you're using it to avoid font substitutions, it's unlikely to work with FM because FM does its own font substitutions (which you can control by editing the maker.ini file) and I think Suitcase tries to work at the OS level --- so it's unlikely to know what's happening inside each application.
