I'm having a mini-TOC issue:

  1. FrameMaker 2019 v15.0.4.751
  2. Heading2 has auto-number defined as: a:Part < ><n+>. In this file, the part number is 2.
  3. Footer is correctly picking up the part number using <$paranumonly[Heading2] and displays a 2.
  4. X-refs are correctly picking up the part number using <$paranumonly[Heading2] and display a 2.
  5. Mini-TOC is not. Instead <$paranumonly[Heading2] is picking up the Heading3MTOC & Heading4MTOC numbers.

 

MTOC Reference Page

MTOC on Body Page
The numbers in orange on the right should all be a 2, representing the part number for this file. Instead, they are displaying the numbes from the beginning of the MTOC line. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Barb, It's been awhile since I looked at this, but I don't think you can use these kinds of building blocks in generated files. They only work in cross-reference formats. -Rick

Right. I updated the book structure and I can now see where I veered off track. So do you agree that the only way to get the part number into the various TOCs is to produce them with x-refs and not with the TOC feature?

I would have to see what you are doing to be sure, but cross-references would likely be the only way to this, unless you want to script it.

This is a different client, but I'll bring it up.
