I have a book with appendices labeled A, B, C, etc. I am trying to get sub-headings like A.1, A.2, etc. with a letter in the "chapter number" position. In InDesign, I have a paragraph style for "Appendix number" like this:
List: Appendices Level: 1 Format: A, B, C, D Number: Appendix ^# Mode: Continue from previous
This works as expected with the first appendix being "Appendix A" and then "Appendix B" and so on. The level 2 headings for Appendix A should look like A.1, A.2, etc.
The definition for "Heading 2" is
List: Appendices Level: 2 Format: 1, 2, 3, 4 Number: ^H.^2^t Mode: Continue from previous Restart numbers: After any previous level
The first Heading 2 in Appendix A is numbered 5.1. The 5 apparently comes from the fact that this is the fifth entry in a book panel. The "Chapter Number" text variable for this document is "A."
What do I need to do to the get the appendix subheadings to have numbers like A.1, A.2, etc. instead of 5.1, 5.2?
