Figure Number Question

I have an issue with the figure numbers in FM12. I am trying to get a figure number output that looks like this: Figure 1.1-1.  My figure numbers are based on the headings.

 

 

Heading 1 input: S: <$chapnum>. 

 

Heading 1 output: 1.

 

 

Heading 2 input: S: <$chapnum>.<n+>< =0>

 

Heading 2 output: 1.1

 

 

Figure input:  F:Figure <$chapnum>-<n+>:

 

Figure output: Figure 1-1:

 

 

For example, if Heading 2 is 1.3 then the figure number should be 1.3-1. If Heading 2 is 6.4 then the figure number should read Figure 6.4-1.

 

 

Does anyone know how to do this?

You need to put the figure numbers in the same series (S) as the headings and add the invisible placeholders (i.e. < >) in the heading tags for the figure component, e.g. Heading 2 figure "S:Figure <$chapnum>.<n>< >-<n+>". For the Heading 1 level, you need to reset all lower level tags to zero.Do a search on the matrix method autonumbering in FM for more details.
