Need to import a graphic (by copy) into a graphics frame located on a Reference page of the document. The objective is to have a number for each chapter on the First Master Page. This is done by using 'Frame Above Pgf' of the Paragraph Tag. This works fine manually, as shown below. I would like to have a generic chapter FM file where I can change the chapter number according to the value of <$chapnum>.
Is there a way to import the graphic (number) into the graphics frame? I see Import, but it requires a TextLoc that I don't have.
This seems to be a very complicated way of doing something that FrameMaker does out of the box. Add a text frame to the first master page, enter a Running H/F variable, style it in any which way you want, and assign the <$chapnum> variable to the Running H/F defnition. Switch back to body page. Done.
Correct me if I did not understand the use case. I have been using Running H/F for all kinds of automated references to chapter numbers, page numbers, even paragraph numbers. Almost no end to what you can do with them.
