First time using InDesign, need help with page numbering and TOC
on Dec 16, 2009 at 9:18:02 am


I just started using the InDesign CS4 package, and I ran into some problems I can't seem to get right.

First let me try to explain how the documents I create look like:

The book consists of 6 or 7 chapters.
The design of pages in all chapters stays more or less the same.
- In the upper right corner the title of the chapter is positioned – on all pages
- In the upper left corner the title of the paragraph is positioned – on all pages
- On the left side of the page, components that are described on the page are listed – on all pages
- Page numbering in the lower right corner. Example of an page number: 4-27 (where 4 indicates the chapter number, and the 27 indicates the page number). All chapter star counting pages from 1.

Doing this I ran onto this problems:

1. Can't seem to get the page numbering right. How do I create this style of page numbers, and how do I define that all chapter should start counting pages from 1? The complete page number in this form (both with chapter number and page number) must also be shown in the table of contents.
2. The table of contents should list components in this order: CHAPTER TITLE, PARAGRAPH TITLE, LIST OF COMPONENTS. I noticed the order isn't right for some pages. The list of components is listed before the paragraph title?
3. Since the titles sometimes get repeated through pages, i duplicated the styles, so one gets used for titles that need to be drawn to the TOC, and the other on titles that gets repeated so it won't find it's place in the TOC. Can this be done some other way? (Maybe somehow defining the repeated title must not be in the TOC.....)

Thank you for helping in advance! :)
