Section numbers error

Postby piotrsmolnicki » 2016-06-25 22:58

System information: [ -, -, -, -, -, - ]

Dear Citavi Team,

I was working on a regulation with sections instead of page numbers. I noticed that second number is always deleted if its the same as the first one.
Example:
Instead of sections 13-11, 13-12, 13-13, 13-14 one section with repeated number is automatically shortened: 13-11, 13-12, 13, 13-14

Best regards,
Piotr

Hi Piotr

If you are using pages as your numbering system the sequences are indeed interpreted as page ranges by Citavi, i.e. a start and an end page. This makes no sense once the start and end page are identical so Citavi removes the end page. Please make sure to use the page type Other if you want to retain the section numbers in full.

Best regards
Sebastian

Dear Sebastian,

Did you try it with Sections? I did not use Pages (as far as I remember - it is obvious for me).

BTW. In Pages "13-11" also does not make sense. The subsections starts from "1", e.g. 13-1, 13-2 etc.

Sincerely,
Piotr

Hi Piotr

Sections work in the same way as pages so that it's possible to quote section ranges (so 12-14 means sections twelve through fourteen, not section 12 subsection 14). If you do not want this behaviour, you'll need to change the Numeral system from Arabic numerals to Default (as entered).

Best regards
Sebastian
