Continuing numbering using legal outline numbering Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have a book outline arranged as a series of numbered chapters within a non-numbered section, like this:

==== toc ====
Section I
1 Chapter 1
1.1 Introduction
1.2 More introduction stuff
2 Chapter 2
2.1 Foo
2.2 Bar
Section II
3 Chapter 3
3.1 What happens here
3.2 And here too
==== toc ====

However, I don't seem to be able to achieve this. When I choose legal numbering for the Chapter titles and their children the numbering resets to 1:

==== toc ====
2.2 Bar
Section II
1 Chapter 3
1.1 What happens here
1.2 And here too
==== toc ====

How do I ensure that the numbering remains continuous through the whole outline? I know it is possible but can't figure out how.

Any guidance much appreciated.

BTW I should mention that the Sections are numbered using Roman numbering.
OK, I think I can see why the numbering may not work the way I want it to. It is rigorously hierarchical. Perhaps another approach could be to take the Sections out of the hierarchy altogether, and just manually number them? Is there a way to insert a string at points in the hierarchy to give the impression of a Section title? Like this:

Chapter 5: more stuff // numbered
5.1 Why use more stuff? // numbered
Section II: Moving on // not numbered
Chapter 6: Advanced techniques // numbered
6.1 Understanding advanced techniques // numbered

Any other solution would be welcome (well, actually, any solution at all).


The numbering in the attachment pic seems to match what you need.
