Figure and Table Numbers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I wonder now to do this:

    I have a document that has multi-level paragraphs such as

    2.1

    2.1.1

    2.1.1.1

    Now I have figures in these paragraphs and want then to follow the paragraph numbers.

    I can get it to do Figure 1 - 1, Figure 1-2 figure 2-1 and figure 2-2

    But I cant get it to do like this

    Figure 2-2

    Figure 2.1-1

    Figure 2.1.1-1

    figure 2.1.1-2

    it will follow the first section style in the "heading 1" but I cannot get it to number heading 2 or subsequent.

     

    Any ideas

  • Word only allows one particular heading level for each caption label.

    Well, Word uses STYLEREF fields to reference the heading numbers. In theory, you could add those manually (for example via Building Blocks) and stay away from the Caption dialog box, but it wouldn’t be any easier than manually typing in the heading numbers with each caption you create.

  • Sounds like something that needs to be fixed in the next revision of word eh?  Please?
