I am using a List of paragraphs to creat a List of Effective Pages. I need to add the chapter number at the start of each chapter's list of pages.
To do this I have created a new text box at the right hand side of each first page in each chapter at the end of the chapter name line at the top of the page and entered the Chapter No. in this box using a unique paragraph tag. I have done it this way as the document content is largly finished and I don't want to add extra lines to the first page of each chapter as this will affect the pagination of the document.
I can create the LOP document with all the entries I need. The problem is the info with the page version and date is placed on the line before the chapter number. See attached.
I have tried rearranging the order of the lines in the reference pages. I have tried giving them differemt flows with the chapter number flow C and the page veriosn and date flow D.
How can I get the chapter number to appear first?
Can you post a screenshot of what your first chapter page looks like? Thanks.
I will co that when I back in the office tomorrow
I got what I needed by using a Run-In Head.
If anyone has a better way please chime in.
If the number is set with the <$chapnum> variable, you can use this on the reference page of your TOC so you don't have to include the paragraph in your TOC.
I'm not making a TOC. I'm using a List of paragraphs to create a List of Effective Pages. There will be more than one chapter number in that list. I don't think the chapnum variable will worek in this instance.
A TOC is just another form of a List of Paragraphs; the setup and building blocks are the same. Here is how you can use the <$chapnum> (or <$volnum>) building block to get content in your TOC/LOP. In the first screenshot, you can see where I am setting a Chapter Number on one of the components and how it shows up in the LOP:
This screenshot shows the <$chapnum> building block on the LOP reference page:
The main takeaway is that you can use Chapter numbering in your book components and have the chapter number appear anywhere in your TOC/LOP. It doesn't even have to appear in your documents.
Ahh, OK I see what you're getting at. That gives me another option.
I've started down using the Run-In header route but there's a long way to go to finish edting each file , (there's about 400 of them). I need to decide if there's any time savings and or any side benefits for either option.
Thank you for your help.
