Tristan Bishop asked: What do I need to type in place of the ? to get Frame
to display the Chapter number?

I sent your message to my Frame guru, and his response is below.
Hope it helps - Corinne

For this to work, your chapter titles must contain only numbers or you must
autonumber your chapter title tag.

Two ways to tackle this problem:

1. Low tech but safer method: Simply create two figure tags:
Figure1 F:Figure<n=1>.<n=1>
Figure F:Figure<n=1>.<n+>
Then reset the n= in each chapter.

2. High tech but somewhat riskier method:

Autonumber your chapter tag, then insert this tag name in the numbering for
your figure:

Chapter Title numbering: F:<n=3>.<n=3>

Figure Numbering: F:<n=Chptitle>.<n+>

For this to work, your chapter title and figure tags must use the same flow,
F:, as you've indicated in your post. In addition, the figure tag in each
chapter must be able to properly read the autonumbering in the chapter
title. Two options here:
a. Reset the chapter title numbering in each chapter.
b. Create a different tag for the each chapter title. Ten chapter titles=10
chapter tags.
a. is higher maintenance but b. is less hassle when it comes to formatting
the reference page for your toc. You don't want to format ten chapter tags,

Option 2 should work for your purposes but make sure to limit your "reading
scheme", i.e. your figure reading the autonumber in the chapter tag, to
these two tags. If you try to introduce another set of tags/levels it will
blow up in 5.5.6 though multiple tags/levels work in 5.5. Guess how I
learned this lesson?

Good luck,

Eric O.
