Chapter 8. Creating Tables of Contents a... > Adding Prefixes to Page Numbering

Adding Prefixes to Page Numbering

You can configure tables of contents in many ways. These are usually driven by your current corporate style or the manner that you choose to organize documents. For example, sometimes document pages are numbered from 1 through n, beginning to end regardless of the specific chapter numbers that head up each chapter or document file. The previous examples of tables of contents lists are suitable for documents with page numbers 1 through n.

What if your documents use chapter-based page numbering? In other words, each page number depends on the chapter number heading of each chapter or document file. In this instance, Chapter 3 page numbers would display as 3-1, 3-2, 3-3…3-49, 3-50, and so on. If this is the case, you want the table of contents, or other lists you plan, to reflect the chapter-based page numbering, or the page numbers would fail to make sense.
