Setting the Starting sectnum

Tom Swan
I would like to be able to begin section numbering with 12.1, 12.2, 12.3 etc, but it seems :sectnum: always starts with 1. Is there a way to set the starting number and then have automatic numbering continue from there?

I don't think it is in Asciidoctor core yet, but when this came up in issue 1113  Dan pointed to this extension

At the moment this can be done with a Treeprocessor.


There's an open issue to add this behavior to core. See https://github.com/asciidoctor/asciidoctor/issues/1434

Thank you! That's exactly what I needed. I hope this change does make it into core -- I would definitely find this feature useful. -- Tom

That works great. Thank you Rocky and Dan. To get chapter 12's numbers correct, it seems sectnumoffset must be 11. Is that intentional? (No biggie either way.) Following is the command I use with the extension in the current path. -- Tom

  asciidoctor -r ./sectnumoffset-treeprocessor.rb -a sectnums -a sectnumoffset=11 c12.txt

Correct. That's because sectnumoffset is an offset (the amount added to the starting number), not a start number itself. Though, we could consider changing the attribute to sectnumstart.

Got it. sectnumstart is probably simpler. -- Tom
