Make sure nothing else uses or resets them, except when specifically intended, such as Paragraph Format names like "Figure.1".

If this is a Book, in the Book and each file, make sure the Document Numbering properties for Paragraph
(*) Continue Numbering from Previous Paragraph in Book

Don't put more than one of the same autonumbered paragraph tag in an Anchored Frame (the counters don't advance correctly).
