Re: Numbering Figures

Note the box that says "Reset numbering with higher level flow." What's confusing is that if the first three items in your flow are Heading 1 Heading 2 Figure , where Figure is a tag flow, then Figure is "at" the second level and will start renumbering only when the "higher level flow" (Heading 1) c...

Endnote by Chapter

Is there a trick for collecting endnotes at the end of each chapter? Perhaps using a page-style break?

Re: Numbering Figures

I use Heading 1 for unnumbered heading because items like Preface then show up in the Outline. As in the linked file I provided, I sometimes use auto-titling for sections of the summary and for appendices. I agree that that complexity is often unnecessary.

Re: Numbering Figures

Perhaps my instructions were not quite right. If so, sorry. I have put a skeletal make-believe document at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/aspi5ln5b3vep4i/AACUTq4ArkIi2USaa5ZGkdQya?dl=0 You have to download the mellel file and then open it. You will see that the figures renumbers by chapter. You can then...

Re: Numbering Figures

Suppose that your title flow already is Heading 1 Heading 2 Figure Heading 3 Other stuff Where Heading 1 is for unnumbered headings, Header 2 is for chapter titles, and Headomg 3 is for chapter-section title. The Figure item should be a tag flow, obtained by clicking the "Add" button and renaming. N...

Re: Updated advice on equations and equation numbering

Having now written a lengthy document using equations, I have two amendments to what I wrote earlier: 1. To get the equation number to be on the same line as the equation pasted in from, e.g., MathType, it may be necessary to adjust the character style for equation number so as to move the baseline ...

Character Style and TOCs

Is it only me? Over the years, I've had trouble generating correct TOCs because some of the headings come out bold when I want them not to be. If no one else has had these problems, then I am resigned to my dullard's shame. However, the interface seems confusing. Whether dealing with a selection of ...

Re: Formatting Autotitle Elements

Hi, I had in mind auto titles, not tags. Your note, however, caused me to disentangle setting each element's Numbering Unit (e.g., arabic or Latin) and setting "style" paragraph or character style. This morning, I experimented again and had better luck setting the styles of elements separately. Perh...

Formatting Autotitle Elements

I have a hard time formatting auto titles and must be doing something wrong, probably very elementary. I thought that the idea was to select a given element of an autotitle definition and double-click the relevant paragraph format in the paragraph palette. However, I frequently am unable to get this...

Re: Updated advice on equations and equation numbering

Let me add some important items. 1. Equation and Equation Number on Same Line . The auto-title approach (Method 2 in my previous post) allows for the equation number to be on the same line as the equation. When defining the auto-title for Equation Number, set a tab close to the right margin where yo...

Re: Updated advice on equations and equation numbering

Responding to my own question, I have tried two methods for entering equations. Both seem acceptable. The first may be more feasible with the new beta's treatment of tables. The latter is what Ori suggested months ago (using autotitles). Method 1. Insert a table with two columns, one row. Adjust the...

List orders

It is possible to put lists of, e.g., character styles or paragraph styles in whatever order one wants. That seems to work only on one's current device. Is there a file that can be synchronized across devices, perhaps in Library/Application Support? If so, I don't see it.
