I'm using LyX and book document class, can I change float and equation numbering format to become [Chapter number].[Float number] instead of the default [Chapter number].[Section Number].[Float number]?

For better explanation please see this :

What I want :

Chapter 1
Chapter title
   Float 1.1
1.1 Section 1
   Float 1.2
   Float 1.3
 1.1.1 Subsection 1.1.1
   Float 1.4
 1.1.2 Subsection 1.1.2
1.2 Section 2
   Float 1.5
 1.2.1 Subsection 1.2.1
   Float 1.6

Default :

Chapter 1
Chapter title
   Float 1.0.1
1.1 Section 1
   Float 1.1.1
   Float 1.1.2
 1.1.1 Subsection 1.1.1
   Float 1.1.3
 1.1.2 Subsection 1.1.2
1.2 Section 2
   Float 1.2.1
 1.2.1 Subsection 1.2.1
   Float 1.2.2

Can I apply this to equation too?

  • if you're using amsmath, you can say \numberwithin{xxx}{section} where "xxx" can be figure, table or equation. Commented Jun 24, 2013 at 12:45

  • Do you want to have separate counters for figures and tables or count them together?

  • Separate counter, but is it possible to count them together? Sometimes I need that too.
