I'm not a guru, but I'm a FrameMaker ACE, recently certifiable, I mean
certified. Spaces are indicated by an underscore.

Try this:

C:Chapter <n+><_=0>:
C:Figure <n>.<n+>:

If you want to add table titles to this same series use:

C:Chapter <n+><_=0><_=0>:
C:Figure <n>.<n+>:
C:Table <n>.<_><n+>:

The empty brackets <_> keep the counters from resetting to zero. The <_=0>
set the Figure and Table to zero to begin the figure and table numbering at
the beginning of a new chapter.

Subject: Figure Numbering in Frame 5.5.6

Hello document gurus,

I'm in Frame 5.5.6 for windows trying to apply figure numbering. I've got a
book with Chapter titles. I've created a Paragraph format called "Anchor"
that announces an anchored frame (which will contain a screen shot) I want
the Anchor format to automatically display

Figure 1.1:
Figure 1.2:

when I'm in Chapter 1, and, when the Chapter changes, move to

Figure 2.1:
Figure 2.2:

Currently, in the Paragraph designer under numbering, I have autonumber
checked and

F:Figure <?>-<n+>:

written, where the ? is obviously the missing ingrediant. What do I need to
type in place of the ? to get Frame to display the Chapter number?
