Starting a Counter from 0

Starting a Counter from 0

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to adjust our counters to start from "0" instead of "1". I've set the initial value to "0" for our counters, but the numbering always starts with "1" (see attached).

How do I manipulate our counters to begin with "0"?

Hi Tag,

If figure numbering should start with 0, code the usetext that outputs the counter before the enumerat that increments it.

Good luck!

Re: Starting a Counter from 0

For page numbering, I figured out that I could use my Page Layout Sets to setup my first page to have "Page 0" in the page.txt line in the folio. This enables the set to start with Page 0 and then use the counter to count the rest of the pages.

As for the figure counter, I haven't had to work with this yet because our figures are going to be fixed at "Figure 1" for now.
