Some of the macros featured lower down this page had been available on my old site for a while, but I thought it would be worth integrating the various functions into a simple add-in (for Word versions 2007 to 2016) for those uncomfortable with the use of macros.
There you have it, how to easily number pages in an InDesign document. Once you learn this feature you will love it. Auto numbering takes the stress out of proof reading and editing documents later and will leave you with more time for the things you do best… creating!
When I’m working on a version controlled document, I always add a suffix “WIP” onto the file name to show that it is Work In Progress. When I am ready to share/issue the document, I remove the “WIP” suffix (and also add details of the version to the version history section within the document). I do this even for draft documents, and even if the document is only stored locally on my computer, where no one else can see it. In this way, I can easily spot the difference between a document that’s in progress and one that’s complete. It’s especially useful if I’m working on several documents at once, and really helps on projects where I am storing work-in-progress on a shared drive.
What’s confounding to me is the Book Panel indicates that each of the sections begins the first page the correct number, but then starts at one on the very next page. So in other words, to be redundant here, the first page of a section is the correct page number to be following a section (example: page #72) but on in the same spread on the next right hand page the numbering starts over at page #1 so that the book panel lists the sections like this:
We have a Quality framework and each elements falls under its key standard. For example Personal Hygiene is under People Standard. Therefore if we have handling bread procedure, then the document number would look like this:
Update “Enter formatting for number” field as needed. If you delete the grey shaded number, click on “Number style for this level”, then the style you want, For ease-of-use’s sake, I always just use numbers.
Every time a document is checked out from FileHold using a standard web browser, Microsoft Office applications or using the FileHold Desktop application it becomes a candidate for automatic version control. Version control allows managers to track the history of a document as it evolves, it records the date when the version was changed and by whom. The actual version numbering system starts at version #1 and is incremented by 1 number each time the document is changed and is checked back in.
Attention! The brackets that surround fields are not the brackets on your keyboard. You can use the Insert -> Field to insert a field, but a more direct way is to press Ctrl+F9. This displays the special brackets with a gray highlight for entering a field name. To add http://ringringpromotions.org total number of pages to a header of footer, for example, press Ctrl+F9 and type NUMPAGES within the brackets.
This is similar to what my company is doing now. A scheme like this can be complicated and confusing, especially at a company with high turn over in roles responsible for document control. I am looking for a different numbering scheme that is sustainable in the event that I ever leave the company.
However, what I want it to do now, instead of just putting the number into the attribute value, I want the number to be a suffix to the existing default tag value of the tag named “ID” which is “ADDRESS:” for some blocks and “ELEVATION:” for other blocks but the tag name that the routine always has to filter for is “ID”. That way the user can pick anywhere on the block – not being forced to pick the tag we want to add numbers to.
At this point, you’re ready to load your card stock into the printer and print the tickets. I recommend that you preview the print job before sending it to the printer to make sure everything’s in order. To print the tickets, do the following:
Manually, you can obtain what is called a Bates stamper that automatically increases the number on the stamper each time it is stamped on a document. This will assist you in not having to either write the increasing numbers on the document or manually changing a stamper each time you place a number on a document.
Most documents are more than one page, so inserting new pages is a common practice in InDesign. You can quickly add a new blank page to a document using the Pages panel. The Pages panel allows you to visually display and navigate through all the pages in your document. When you work with multiple page documents, moving pages around is inevitable. You can simply drag pages in the Pages panel to rearrange them within a document or use the Move Page command on the Options menu to move them between documents. When you no longer need a page, you can quickly delete it from your document using the Pages panel.
I agree with Robert. There is a balance between putting every meta data available in the document code and using only a sequence code / version code, which in theory is the only information relevant for extranets.
You can also insert a page number inside existing artistic or paragraph text. If the text is located on a local layer, the page number is inserted on the current page only. If the text is located on a master layer, the page number becomes part of the master layer and appears on all pages where the master layer is visible. For more information about artistic and paragraph text, see Adding and manipulating text.
Each time you work on a document in your Book file, it’s best to open your Book file first, then double-click the document to open it within the Book file. That way, the Book file remains up to date. If you work on a document outside of the Book file, the Book file will show an error symbol next to that document. If that happens, just double-click the document in the Book file to open it and re-save it to get rid of the error. And after you’ve saved your documents, remember to save your Book file too.
In the Mail Merge Recipients dialog, you have the opportunity to customize the list. We want all the numbers (Figure F), so don’t uncheck anything before clicking OK. When applying this method to your own work, remember that you can exclude recipients at this point.
Tip: You might find it helpful to view not only the contents of your header or footer area, but also the formatting marks in those areas. On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, choose Show/Hide (¶) to turn on the display of formatting marks. Choose the button again to turn off the display.
10. Center the line below the graphics by selecting the line, holding down the Shift key, selecting the page border, and once again pressing the letter C key on your keyboard will move that line to the middle of the page.

Once I worked with a company of less than 100 people, manufacturing fairly simple devices. Their documentation system consisted of a few numeration systems depending on the type of document. One of the procedures had a number 0000057-001, which they simply called “fifty seven.” A drawing was numbered 327-856-99-17. Some companies obviously want to feel like the “big boys.” If numbers are long and complicated, one might think that they make complex and important products.
As there is a uniqueness check – the holes are allowed in the document numbering system and all document number that were assigned are accounted and accessible (with permissions) to the concerned document control teams and their clients.
InDesign has a robust set of numbering tools, but most users don’t do much more than set up basic numbered lists. Yesterday, in my Advanced Adobe InDesign class, a student asked how to number her chapters, subheads, tables and figures. It can be done, but isn’t covered in our workbook.
If you want to rename a selected master page, click the “Rename” button in the “Master Page” button group. This will open the “Rename Master Page” dialog box. Then enter a new ID and description for the master page. Click the “OK” button to rename the selected master page.
A Sequence field tracks differently numbered lists within a document. Using different sequence fields can give you the ability to print a number of tickets on a page, make a stack of pages, cut the stack into tickets and have the tickets numbered sequentially.
Hi, I was wondering if you can help me. I’m trying to put both page numbers on the left hand page of a DS so it reads ‘1/2’ in the bottom left corner (asymetriclly). But stumped as to how to get it work in Master Pages. Is there a way to create this?
I am making a sales booklet. It is drawn up with a sheet size of A3 in landscape view. This way I can get a left and a right page per sheet. As each month goes by I might add another page or two.
Sometimes there are requests from users that make no sense at all to me. One of those requests is the desire to be able to number pages in CorelDRAW. My thinking is that if you have a document that needs pages numbered, CorelDRAW is the wrong software for the job anyways. I turned to page layout software designed for such a task.
When the context menu opens, look for the choice Edit Field…. If it doesn’t exist, then your template doesn’t use the SEQ function. If it does exist, click on it. When the next window opens, you should see SEQ in the Advance field properties box. That template definitely uses SEQ.
