How to change numbering for equations, figures, and tables in a document created with a Style Editor style

Version: 2.5, 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

In Style Editor styles, the numbers of equations, floating figures and floating tables are determined by the settings in the division in which the equation, figure or table appears. To change the way the numbers appear in your document, you must change the specifications from the Division Counter tab sheet in the Style Editor. Follow the instructions below to change the specifications.

  1. Open the style you're using in the Style Editor.

  2. From the Style Editor Parts menu, choose Division and then choose the division level for which you want to override the numbering of equation labels, figure labels, or table labels (probably chapter for book and report styles or section for article styles).

  3. Choose the Counters tab.

  4. To change equation numbering:

    1. Check Override Equation Label.

    2. Click the Equation Label Override button to open the Override Equation Label and Counter dialog box.

    3. If you want the counter to be reset to 1 at the start of this division type, check the Reset the Counter box. Otherwise, the equation numbers will continue in sequence from the previous equation in the document.

    4. In the Label Components area, enter the typeset material you want to appear for the equation label for this division. You can use the built-in counter equationCount in this component list.

    5. In the Cross Reference Components area, enter the typeset material you want to appear for the label of any cross-reference to a math equation in this division.

    6. Choose OK.

  5. To change floating figure numbering:

    1. Check Override Floating Figure Label.

    2. Click the Floating Figure Label Override button to open the Override Figure Label and Counter dialog box.

    3. If you want the floating figure counter to be reset to 1 at the start of this division type, check the Reset the Counter box. Otherwise, the floating figure numbers will continue in sequence from the previous floating figure in the document.

    4. In the Label Components area, enter the typeset material you want to appear for the floating figure label for this division. You can use the built-in counter figureCount in this component list.

    5. In the Cross Reference Components area, enter the typeset material you want to appear for the label of any cross-reference to a floating figure in this division.

    6. Choose OK.

  6. To change floating table numbering:

    1. Check Override Floating Table Label.

    2. Click the Floating Table Label Override button to open the Override Table Label and Counter dialog box.

    3. If you want the counter to be reset to 1 at the start of this division type, check the Reset the Counter box. Otherwise, the floating table numbers will continue in sequence from the previous table number in the document.

    4. In the Label Components area, enter the typeset material you want to appear for the floating table labels for this division. You can use the built-in counter tableCount in this component list.

    5. In the Cross Reference Components area, enter the typeset material you want to appear for the label of any cross-reference to a floating table in this division.

    6. Choose OK.

  7. Save the style.
