I have a set of Auto Numbered paragraphs in a document. They look like this:

I want each of these paragraphs to be repeated exactly as they are in this section into another section of my book.

The "Article" Auto Number is set up as: A:Article <R+>:\sn

The next level "BodyAlpha1" Auto Number is set as: B:\t<A=1>.\t

I was able to get the "Article III: Judging of Contests" paragraph to repeat perfectly with the cross reference built like this:

<Default ¶ Font><$paranum[ArticleHead1]><$paratext><Default ¶ Font>

However when I try to get the next level to show up, I seem to lose the \t "tabs that are in the Auto Number of the second level. The text comes through perfectly but I can get it to bring along the complete Auto Number from the original Auto Number. It looks like this.

This is how I have the Cross Reference set for the second level:

<Default ¶ Font><$paranum[BodyAlpha1]><$paratext><Default ¶ Font>

I have only attempted to do the first paragraph cross reference. As you can see the tabs do not come with the reference. I only did the first paragraph so the second two paragraphs are picking up the numbering from previous paragraphs in the section. I tried entering "\t" into the cross referencing settings but it does not matter. And I have the paragraph tabs set in the paragraph that I am pasting the reference into.

I don't know if anyone can help me but I sure would welcome some suggestions.

Hi Chris:

To clarify: you want to maintain the same auto-number, right, and not have it increment at the new location? (Either one is possible.)

In that case, add a paragraph x-ref to the A paragraph (mine is the very last paragraph in my screen shot) and create a custom x-ref format—mine is <$paranum><paratext> and it references BodyAlpha (you have extraneous building blocks in your format):

Add the tabs to the xref format—Mine is \t<$paranum>\t<paratext>

Make a new paragraph tag to format it—note I turned off auto-number because we are pulling in the number from the source paragraph, but left the tabs.
