Hi all. This is driving me nuts and the document is due on Monday.

 

Heres the problem: In the original document (2014 vesrion), the numbering for SCRs in the table is fine, i.e., the numbering starts where it should at 1.1.

However, in the 2021 version of the same document, the numbering for the SCRs in the table is off, i.e., the numbering starts at 7.1.

I've checked the Numbering in the Paragraph Deisgner and both are the same. Help!

 

Cheers -- John

Hi Rick. Appeciate the offer but today has turned into a Monday for me, i.e., crazy busy. Will circle around to you next week if I can't figure it out. Thx again.

OK, no problem. I think we could figure it out quickly if I can look at it.

Keypoint for consistent numbering is the series label. For example, for Headings the usual scheme is

H:<n+>.< =0>< =0>                Level 1
H:<n>.<n+>< =0>                  Level 2
H:<n>.<n>.<n+>.                  Level 3

The sequence label here is H:

You do not have such a label and hence the numbering is ruined by some arbitrary numbered list.

Hi K.Daube. Thx for your response.

Well, now I know what to do in the future but how can I solve my immediate
problem? Is there a way to look at the "SCR" series throughout the book to
see where the numbering went astray?

In general, how can I see the series and number systems used throughout the
entire book?

Cheers and thx. -- John

Assuming you have a separate paragraph tag that is just for numbering the SCRs, edit the autonumbering sequence in one file to include a series label and then import your paragraph tags to the other files.

 

After that, make sure your document numbering is set correctly for chapter/paragraph numbers at both the document and book level.

 

If you have tags with the same names but different properties that you don't want to overwrite, copy a correctly numbered paragraph into a blank document, then save as MIF and edit the MIF file in a text editor to remove all but the Paragraph Catalog that contains the definition for just the one tag. Save the MIF file, open it in FrameMaker, and import paragraph tags from it. That guarantees you only import the tag you want to change.

 

For example, if I wanted to import the definition for JUST the A Anchor tag, my edited MIF file would look like this:

#    Paragraph Text

(And ignore any coloring you might see, it seems Khorus finally added colors for different code language, at least in edit mode, but this is just text. I wanted it visually distinct from the regular text of the answer.)

Hi John:

 

SCR has an unnamed numbered series in this document and I believe your book is set up to increment the paragraph numbers from the previous file in book. The table starts with a 7 because it is continuing from a previous file.

 

We talked about cleaning up your lists after this goes to print, so for now, just add < =0> to the CellHeading at the top of the table, and click Apply (not Update Style). This is a quick fix that will let you meet your deadline, but is not a good long-term solution.
