    Small Caps in Customized Numbering

    My company's standard Heading 1 uses small caps. They also want the word CHAPTER to appear before the number of the chapter. E.g., they want CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION auto-numbered with all text in small caps. I noticed that small caps was grayed out in the font dialog of the Customized Number List (Word 2000). I don't see an easy workaround. Does anyone out there?

    I think you are toasted. Word does not appear to let you choose that one as an option and using a macro to set it gets ignored.

    I suspect your only option is to type it in and use a sequence field for the value. That is a non-option as far as I can see

    Could you modify Heading 1 style to do what you want?

    I would concur with David, if you can't access the small caps through the font dialog box actually in the customize numbering, fall back to the modify level of the style and then format and go into font and select small cap. I think it will work for you then. But if I took this approach, I would do ALL of my font settings there and not a mixture of both places.

    Good try, but doing this will affect only the paragraph text. The text in the autonumber stays unaffected.

    Andrew's probably right that this can't be done in the context of outline numbered styles.

    Re: Small Caps in Customized Numbering

    Another solution might be to find a font that will give you what you want. There are fonts that provide genuine small caps (i.e. the lowercase letters are replaced with a smaller version of the uppercase letters, in the font itself).

    I am sure that if you have any product that includes a good selection of fonts you may already have one. I have actually have a version of Garamond that is set in small caps.

    Regards,

    Re: Small Caps in Customized Numbering

    I can't disprove your toast theory. I tried inserting an AutoNum field after the word "Chapter" and that solved the small caps problem because the "Chatper" text could be formatted any way I wanted it, but then I could no longer use "chapter number preceding" type figure and page numbering. Instead of Figure 1-1 the first figure in chapter 1 became Figure 0-1. So then I tried formatting the whole line, autonum field and all, using Bullets & Numbering with the number formatted to a hidden font. This looked great until I looked at Print Preview, which changed the small caps Trebuchet font to some mysterious font in all small letters. It was weird. Back in Page Layout mode, with paragraph marks turned off, the word "Chapter" was in the correct Trebuchet small caps, but with the marks turned on, it changed to an undefined font right in front of my eyes.

    If you are using a Sequence field for the Heading Numbers then your figures need to be set up with fields that look this this.

    Chapter {Seq Head1}. Lahh Lahh Lahh
    Figure {Seq Head1 c}-{SEQ Figure}
    Figure {Seq Head1 c}-{SEQ Figure}
    Chapter {Seq Head1}. Lahh Lahh Lahh
    Figure {Seq Head1 c}-{SEQ Figure r1}
    Figure {Seq Head1 c}-{SEQ Figure}

    Re: Small Caps in Customized Numbering

    Oooops! Touche' that is true. [img]/w3timages/icons/sad.gif[/img] Think a special font must be the ticket because I've tried several ways to get just the numbering to go Small Cap and it just doesn't do it. [img]/w3timages/icons/sad.gif[/img]
