Hi beat,

It has been a long time since I worked on a reference page, but I think you may have a fundamental misunderstanding of how the numbering works. I don't think that a TOC can do any type of autonumbering. When you put the "1" in the reference page entry, it is interpreted as static text and naturally will not change.

I believe all numbering should come from the target paragraphs using the building blocks like <$paranum>. Somebody can correct me if I am wrong.

Dear Russ,

thanks for your feedback, it helped a lot!

so for the TOC there is no paragraph numbering to inclued! it's all coming from the TOC of the Templates reference page and looks like this:

<$paranum> <$paratext>.......<$pagenum>

Thanks a lot!

best regards

Hi beat,

I have a similar numbering system in my TOC styles as I struggled to figure out chapter numbers and paragraph numbers.

In my setup:

TOC1: <n+>\t

TOC2: <n>.<n+>\t

TOC3: <n>.<n>.<n+>\t

This may not be the best approach (I'm still a framemaker newbie) but it does work.

Hope that helps,

Kat

Dear Russ

thanks for your feedback.

The numbering you see in front of the referenspage TOC ist NOT manauly entered! it's dyseplaed because of the entery in the paragraph numbering field.

The numbering in the books TOC works quite well exept ot the 1 in front, we already treyed T: and <$chapnum> but

I did not try <$paranum> yet.
