Philip suggested setting up a "list type" which numbers across the whole document.
Matze said, though, that he wants "to be able to place these numbers wherever I want, into the text and into the find/replace window."
Martin's response underlines my frustration with the present automatic numbers, saying that they "might not behave exactly as you remember in Nisus Writer Classic."
What I am looking for is a fully customizable automatic number (or Roman numeral, or English letters) that I can place anywhere:
I have an outline that has about 20-30 lines per page, with each line beginning with a section number. Interspersed with these section numbered lines are other lines or paragraphs. What I want to do is place the figure § followed by an automatic number, like this:
followed in each line with text that gives the outline.
AND I want to be able to cut and paste any § line backward or forwards, to have them auto-renumber.
At <http://www.nzdl.org/gsdlmod?e=d-00000-0 ... 9e89.5&x=1>, NWC 4.0.6 describes what it offered:
I find this function working in MOSX using Word. I find I can copy what I number this way in Word, and that I can paste this into NWP. I also find that I can move these lines around in Pro, but they don't automatically renumber. In order to have them renumber, I have to copy these and paste them back into Word, and THEN they automatically renumber.Numbering and Referencing -- You can set up flexible numbering sequences for chapters, four levels of sub-topics, figures, equations, and tables. Nisus Writer also provides six custom numbering sequences for anything else you might need to number (maps, pie charts, whatever).
Isn't there some way to bring these NWC totally processable automatic numbers into NWP? Along with Matze I say, "I am truly missing NWC's chapter numbers and define numbers dialogue." Like him, I want "to be able to place these numbers wherever I want, into the text and into the find/replace window."
