FrameMaker and Word: Autonumbering; create "bullet proof" nested lists and autonumbered headings
About This Episode
How many times have you had to correct random numbering "mishaps" within nested lists and autonumbered headings in Word? With FrameMaker 11, this drudgering becomes a thing of the past with what most users describe as "bullet proof" mixed numbering. Many also describe it as "easy." The autonumber setting in paragraphs is completely unaffected by page breaks, and FrameMaker has no section breaks. With FrameMaker 11, you aren't limited to a certain number of nested list levels. You can also mix multi-numbered prefix stings in any fashion you wish. When it comes to text prefixes (like "Table X.X" or "Figure X.X"), you have complete control over wording and formatting. Warning: once you use this feature in FrameMaker 11, there's no turning back.
