I've been using the numbering fields (a number range variable) for my worksheets (using Writer) and they've been working really well. Here's what I need to do next: I'm creating a packet of worksheets in the same document and need to either restart the numbering for each worksheet or have numbering that go like 1.1, 1.2,... then 2.1, 2.2....

I'm not sure how to do this, I suspect is has to do with the "numbering by chapter" but I've played with this and nothing obvious has jumped out at me yet.

Any hints would be appreciated.

Could you possibly edit your question and add you have currently and what you want to have? I am assuming you are using Writer; please confirm or correct. ----

Assuming it is Writer, are you numbers outline numbers or numbers of a numbered list?

I figured it out, turns out it's pretty easy. When I double clicked on the field it opens some options. Change a number from illustration+1 to 1 and the numbers after will be changed accordingly.
