Hello all,

Running H/F 1 variable is set as: <$paranum[ChapterNumber]>

ChapterNumber para tag is se as C:<n+>\st

Numbering for document (at book level) is:

Any suggestions as to why the chapter number does not display (as if it were perhaps empty)?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards,

Ben

Is there actually a paragraph in the main text flow tagged with Paragrah Style “ChapterNumber”, so that the Running H/F 1 variable can pull it?

Running H/F variables scan the text flow for a paragraph tagged with the style defined in the variable and then display the paranum and/or content of the first ibstance found.

If there is no paragraph like this, the variable has nothing to pull from and will therefore remain empty.
