Master document not reproducing equation numbering

I have a document with equations numbered using the fn+F3 trick. Then, I have edited the field with the equation number to include the chapter number, so instead of having equations '1', '2', etc, I have equations '1.1', '1.2', etc. I have created a master document and inserted this document. Everything is ok, except for the equation number. They are all back to '1', '2', '3', etc, meaning, not including the chapter number. More over, it is not possible to edit the fields with the equations' numbers to include the chapter number. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this? I'm attaching an example, consisting in one document with one chapter and one numbered equation, and a master document including this document and where we can see the difference in the equation numbering. Any help is welcome. Many thanks. Bets regards Wagner C:\fakepath\Example.odt C:\fakepath\Example.odm

That's because you made the change in numbering within the subdocument: you need to to that on the master instead.

Open your master document (not the subdocument, the master) and insert a numbered equation on it, change the numbering on that expression and then press F9 to update everything. Now you can delete that expression you used to change the numbering: everything will be fine.
