I am creating a novel with three parts, in each part multiple chapters, in each chapter, sub-chapters which I want ‘numbered’ and RESET within each Chapter within each Part.
My setup and hierarchy as follows…
In binder, I have a folder for each ‘Part’. (when compiled, this prints out ‘Part 1’, ‘Part 2’, etc…) Then under each Part, I have a folder for each chapter which I label a meaningful title for each chapter. I have successfully included a divider line below each title. All good so far. Under each chapter ‘labeled with the meaningful title’, I have my text files (the content of my novel) for each part of each chapter (I’ll call them SUB-CHAPTERS). Now, I want each sub-chapter to have its own Number. For example, Under a chapter with meaningful title ‘Rowan’s Dream’, I want to print 1, 2, 3, etc… as the sub-chapters progress under ‘Rowan’s Dream’ but then when I get to a new chapter, I want that numbering to reset and start again at 1.
For ‘Parts’, I assigned under ‘section layout’ ‘HEADING’ and labeled it as ‘Part’, then under ‘Edit Format’ ‘Section Layouts’ under ‘Part Number Page’, I inserted this tag: PART <$t:part>. This numbers each Part in my hierarchy.
For each sub-chapter (text files) I assigned under ‘section layout’, ‘SECTION’, then under ‘Edit Format’ ‘Section Layouts’ under ‘SECTION TEXT’, I inserted these tags:
<$n> (this tag inserts the numbers for each sub-chapter)
<$img:bd4.png> (this tag inserts an image for a line divider).
Ok, now when I compile, numbers appear above each divider line of each text file (sub-chapters) within each chapter. This is what I want. However, when I proceed to a new chapter or a new Part, the sub-chapter numbering from the 1st chapter in 1st part, continues onward without resetting to number ‘1’ which is what I want.
So what do i need to do to reset my ‘sub-chapter’ numbering?
