Include book component and paragraph autonumbers

In a generated list, you can include autonumbers—text and numbers inserted automatically as part of a paragraph format—in addition to (or instead of) page numbers in entries. In an index, you can use autonumbers instead of page numbers if all paragraphs that contain index markers are also auto­numbered.

You can use the following building blocks to add autonumbers:

<$volnum>, <$chapnum>, <$sectionnum>, <$subsectionnum> which include the volume, chapter, section, and sub section counters.

<$paranumonly>, which includes the counters and the characters between them (for example, 2.2for a paragraph whose autonumber is Section 2.2).

<$paranum>, which includes the counters and all text in the autonumber (except for spaces or tab characters at the end).

Include volume and chapter autonumbers

1)Choose View > Reference Pages and display the reference page that contains the special text flow.

2)In a list or index, type the <$volnum> or <$chapnum> building block where you want to insert the autonumber.

For example, to include the chapter number along with the page number (such as 3-1) in entries generated from markers of type Index, type <$chapnum>- before the <$pagenum> building block in the paragraph tagged IndexIX.

tip:   To make sure numbers such as “3-1” don’t break between lines, insert a nonbreaking hyphen by pressing Esc hyphen h.

Include paragraph autonumbers

1)Choose View > Reference Pages and display the reference page that contains the special text flow.

2)Do one of the following:

In a list, type the <$paranumonly> or the <$paranum> building block where you want to insert the autonumber.

In an index, replace the <$pagenum> building block with <$paranum> or <$paranu­monly> in the paragraph with the tag that begins with the marker type. For example, to include the paragraph autonumber rather than the page number in entries generated from markers of type Index, replace the <$pagenum> building block in the paragraph tagged IndexIX.
