I have a book file that has one appendix file ("Appendix A: Event Codes"). In the appendix, the word "Appendix" is tagged Chapter.num new, the letter "A" is tagged Chap.Num, and "Event Codes" is tagged Appendix name. My TOC file is set up to include paragraphs tagged Appendix.name, Chapter.name, Head1, Head2, and Index Title.
In the generated TOC, the appendix appears as "Appendix Event Codes: Event Codes" instead of "Appendix A: Event Codes." I tried adding the Chap.Num tag to the list of paragraphs included in the TOC, but that didn't work. Does anyone know what mistake I'm making?
How have you indicated to FrameMaker that Appendix A has the chapter number set to A?
The correct way:
If that takes care of A, on the B. Insert the <$chapnum> variable. Then set the numbering to Format > ALPHABETIC and Continue Numbering from Previous Chapter in book.
I followed the steps above, and my TOC now has a new entry: Appendix A: A. It also still shows "Appendix Event Codes: Event Codes" right under the new entry.
Ok, Cameo. I'm trying to recreate this from your description, so let me try it again.
