I have a book with twelve chapters. I hope the graphic title number of the first chapter is “Figure 1-01, Figure 1-02”..., the second chapter is “Figure 2-01, Figure 2-02”..., and the third chapter is “Figure 3-01, Figure 3-02”... .I tried “Figure^H-^#^(” But the result is that the graphic numbers of multiple chapters are repeated and start with 1, such as the first chapter is “Figure 1-01”, “Figure 1-02”..., the second chapter is “Figure 1-01”, “Figure 1-02”..., instead of “Figure 2-01”, “Figure 2-02”... .After that, I changed it to “Figure 1-^#^(”, but this time in chapters one to nine, I have a graphic caption numbering style in one chapter, no problem, but after the tenth chapter, I can't continue “Figure 10-01, Figure 10-02”, “Figure 10-03...", because the numbering level is only 9, so the tenth chapter cannot continue. What should I do?How to implement the first chapter Graphic numbering Figure 1-01..., the second chapter Figure 2-1..., the tenth chapter Figure 10-01……2024-03-01_023827.jpg

In your current case - you don't need more than 3 levels - unless you have some other lists.

 

You've also mixed Graphic with Title - they need to be in the same "scope":

You also NEED to Anchor your images - or rather group of Image and Caption - otherwise, InDesign won't be able to index them properly.

I've also fixed your 2nd level.

 

Attached is your fixed file.

This book does have many levels of numbering. Here is only to quickly produce sample texts to ask you questions, so some title numbering styles have been deleted.I seem to have some insight into what you said, but I only want one chapter to be realized, such as the first chapter “Figure 1-01, Figure 1-02, Figure 1-03......”, Chapter 2 “Figure 2-01, Figure 2-02, Figure 2-03......”, Chapter 10 “Figure 10-01, Figure 10-02, Figure 10-03......”, There is no need to renumber the graphic caption numbers under each heading.Please also ask, I have set the chapter number of “Figure^H-^H^(” for the number. Why does the number of ^H not be incremented?Where is the problem?

Unfortunately, you are limited to 9 levels. If that's not enough - then you need to split your document into smaller portions and use Book feature.

You can have only ONE Chapter per INDD Document - that's why you need to use Book option:

Or use ParaStyles with numbering option - as per my example INDD file.

The official introduction is too simple and some people can't understand it. There must be a video operation display, or a document that has been set up, and you will understand it by studying it.

Yes, it is the result I want, but can I achieve such a number without the book function?

I set the symbol number of ^H, why is the number always displayed as 1 without incrementing?image副本.jpg

No--you can't do it without using a book. A single file can only have one chapter number. If you try to make a complicated number sequence, the number style (00)  would apply to all auto numbers. You should be able to do this if you don't mind your pseudo-chapter numbers showing up as 01, 02, 03.

 

I would use a book file--it's not hard to learn if you don't already know it and it makes your project much easier to work with.

Using the book function, I can only export the contents of multiple documents to a PDF file and merge them in order to achieve the first chapter Figure 1-02, Figure 1-02...Chapter 2 Figure 2-01, Figure 2-02..., Chapter 10 Figure 10-01...This feels more troublesome. I want to implement each chapter in a document to be transformed according to the chapter number. As shown in the first chapter, Figure 1-02, Figure 1-02...Chapter 2 Figure 2-01, Figure 2-02..., Chapter 10 Figure 10-01, Figure 10-02……,

You have to use a book file to do what you want. It's not that hard to learn. You would export a complete PDF from the book that would include all chapters.

I don't understand English very well. I rely entirely on translation software. I hope you can understand it. Thank you for your reply.
