If you have created great numbering schemes and would like to share them with another person, it is not an easy task to copy your schemes to another machine as the schemes are registry settings and difficult for the typical user to get to. If you open a document with the scheme to be saved, it’s easy to add and save the scheme for you to use.
Chapter title is the first level of numbering in this document, and “Chapter ^H: ” tells InDesign to type “Chapter 1: ” in front of the chapter title in the first chapter, “Chapter 2: ” in the second chapter, and so on.
there.. i’ve tried using recording Action. How to use script, (if i have to use script, can you instruct me on a step-by-step procedure or atleast pinpoint me to a thread that explains it, because the ticket’s deadline is on May 4th, and again i have 12,500 tickets to make)
Entering an SEQ field manually is easy enough, but if you’re working with this field a lot, there’s a much easier way: You can use AutoCorrect to insert them into text. Create the AutoText entry as follows:
You could copy the inline-numbered paragraph, update all the values, and the codes would evaluate based on the preceding paragraph. In other words, the new paragraph’s first field code would update to 8, the second to 9, and so on. But you can reset a code and thereby subsequent codes using a special switch as follows:
Numbers can be grouped so that a sequence that may appear as 000000000 can now appear as 000-000-000 – in this instance the numbers have been separated in groups of 3 characters using a dash separator.
I could not translate either of the options’ instructions into anything that worked. I find they lack clarity and it is difficult to understand what you are supposed to do in each step of the process.
An auto-numbered paragraph style can do this. Also, you could create and insert a text variable that contains “Spring 2010” into each cell. Change the season and/or year in the variable to update all instances of its occurrence.
If you place multiple frames on one page and apply the same numbering style, InDesign will count not be placement but order of creation. That is the reason why I get this weird order on the picture above.
I have form with 4 text boxes. First txtBox is protocol number (this number consists of two letters, current year and increasing numbers: eg: KU-2013/0001). Next field is date field. Then I have description field (memo) and Operator name (text).
Note: By default, Publisher opens the My Data Sources folder first. If you saved your data source in a location other than the My Data Sources folder, browse to the location where you saved your data source.
Next we will import our pre-designed raffle image. For the purpose of this tutorial we will be using a pdf that was created using Adobe Illustrator (Download pdf File). Place this pdf into the document by going to (File > Place) browse from the file and click Open.
Thanks for the auto numbering info. I got it to work, well sort of. We have a set of interrogatories already set up without auto numbering. Do I have to change each interrogatory question in order to get them to auto number?
To insert a new one, insert it from quick tables. If you assign a unique name to your quick table you can use that name and F3 to insert the table rather than going through the menus in Word 2013 and later. (I usually start my building block names with an underscore _ so they show up at the top of menus.)
Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Illustrator is meant for that sort of thing. But, as someone who likes to use Illustrator all the time, http://mywebspider.com good to see if we can find a solution in it!
