I have Word template that splits separate chapters into separate sections (with section breaks) and also has a set footer for this setup.
If Chapter 1 is called Introduction
The footer will say Introduction: 1 of XX (where XX is the total number of pages in the chapter)
If Chapter 2 is Summary
The footer will be Summary: 1 of XX, etc.
Of course, by having all of these section breaks the Table of Contents automatically generated by Word has each chapter starting at number 1 giving me something looking like this:
Which isn't very appealing. Ideally I would like it something like this:
Note: In the Table of Contents above the footer page numbers for the first page of each chapter would have been, Introduction: 1 of 3, Summary: 1 of 3, Chapter 3: 1 of 8, Chapter 4: 1 of XX
So is there a way to force Word to ignore the section breaks only for the purpose of the Table of Contents (as I still want the footer page numbers to be set out in their sections)?
Or is this so unintuitive that I will just have to manually change the numbers once the document is completely finished and formatted?
Thanks for any input on this as I've seen a lot of posts about people wanting the section breaks in the Table of Contents (splitting between roman numerals and numbers, etc) or people wanting to remove the breaks for continuous page numbers and thus continuous Table of Contents but never the mix that I'm asking about above.
