If you’re working with long documents or producing EPUBs you’re probably using InDesign’s Book utility to manage your project and breaking the book into multiple InDesign documents. Each document starts a section, but you have the same options to choose from in the Numbering and Section Options, with a few additional points to consider:
Marking up changes is a common technique to show your audience what has changed in a document. Microsoft Word’s “track changes” facility has improved considerably over the years and is a very useful markup tool, although I always feel somewhat politically conservative every time I “reject change”.
If an unwanted character appears at the beginning of the page number (so that, for example, a jump line reads “Cont’d on page A16” instead of “Cont’d on page 16”), you probably included a section prefix in the Numbering & Section Options dialog box. Turn off or edit the prefix.
The SEQ or Sequential Numbering Function in Word is the best and quickest way to number your tickets. Many raffle ticket templates use them, yet few sites explain how it works. To see if it uses the SEQ function, you need to download the template first. Then, open it in Word, click right document numbering in word the middle of where a serial number is, and then right-click.
I answer readers’ questions about Microsoft Office when I can, but there’s no guarantee. When contacting me, be as specific as possible. For example, “Please troubleshoot my workbook and fix what’s wrong” probably won’t get a response, but “Can you tell me why this formula isn’t returning the expected results?” might. Please mention the app and version that you’re using. I’m not reimbursed by TechRepublic for my time or expertise, nor do I ask for a fee from readers. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some customers (especially engineering companies) work with large and complex documents that are tightly controlled. These customers like to assign a specific number to a document and use it throughout its lifecycle, this is what FileHold calls a document control number.

Word uses styles to create Tables of Contents. A common practice in law firms is to generate outline numbered styles that have bold or underlined heading text immediately followed by paragraph text on the same line. Because the paragraph is formatted with a style, Word tries to place the entire paragraph in the Table of Contents.
I use the default page very unusal way by keeping the width & height with max. page size. I need your favour as if i want to A4 page border i am going back again and choose a4 page and double click on the rectangle to achieve it and again i choose by max. page.
Subhead 1 is the second level of numbering in this document, and “^H.^2.^t” tells InDesign to type the chapter number (^H), a period (.), the subhead number (^2) and a tab (^t) in front of the each Subhead 1, “1.1, 1.2, 1.3”. When set up as shown, the ^2 numbers will increment automatically.

Most of us have experience using the Adobe Suite, but how much do you know about InDesign? This powerful program has an entire host of features that you wont find in Illustrator or Photoshop, it’s for this reason that it has remained one of the most popular programs for graphic design and typography. The thought of learning InDesign may seem daunting to some, but there’s some really useful functions that are easy to learn and will save you hours of work. In this tutorial you will gain experience working with the page palette and special characters to make a basic page numbering system. You will also learn a few shortcuts that will help you work faster with InDesign.
Hi Enas, it sounds like the issue you are experiencing is about the PDF Export process. Have a look at this thread on the Adobe Community support forum:http://forums.adobe.com/thread/615575 It seems to suggest that corrupt image files can cause problems like this. You also might want to check that you enough space on the disk you’re exporting the PDF too – if it runs out of room then you would get errors. Sorry I can’t help much more than give you some general ideas. Best of luck resolving the issue. Cheers Philippa
A particular report must have pages numbered consecutively from 1-12. In addition, it must have 4 un-numbered pages inserted after page 8. In the past these 4 pages have been produced as a separate file but it would be easier to combine the two documents into a single file. How can this be done?
IF a document is part of a book and the previous document ended on a right-hand page, AND if your book options are set to allow documents to start on left or right pages, AND if you choose “Automatic Page Numbering,” THEN the document will be allowed to automatically start on the left page. This is great if you need to break a document up in a spot where it’s not necessary for the next document to start on the right.
Outline Numbering becomes much more powerful when you attach styles to each level. Styles provide the text formatting while outline numbering provides the numbering format. Together, you can save yourself a great deal of time.
After doing all the post processing of my RAW file and saving as JPEG, the dialog changes the file number to one that has been used before and asks if I want to replace it. It is usually a number a few back. I have to manually change the number to match the original. Sure slows things down and if I’m not vigilant could end up overighting a file.
In the standard system, official document numbering with number groups is activated for selected countries, and the standard logic is used to create the official document numbers. For Convergent Invoicing in Extended FI-CA (S), Telecommunications (T), Media (M), and Public Sector (P), you can use the following additional features to adapt ODN with number groups to your requirements:
Outside service companies that copy or image your documents can customize document bar-coded numbers to meet your needs. – Some photocopiers now automatically place a number on your documents as they are being copied. If possible, attach a number along with a bar code. This will assist you later with automatic indexing, in-court presentation, or for pretrial retrieval purposes.
Thank you so much for your response! I will fiddle with it later today and I will tell you if this works or not. Whenever I tried to go to page numbering and set it, I selected all of the pages, so I don’t know if this messed it up.
It sounds like what should be page 63 has been defined as a section start. Does it have a triangle above it? This would be why the numbering format is different. Select that page and go into the Numbering & Section Options and deselect Start Section. This should continue your numbering.
A master page is one of the most important parts of creating an InDesign document. A master page holds and displays all the elements that you want to appear on every page in a document, such as headers, logos, page numbers, and footers. The master is like a background layer to a page. Everything on the background layer appears on the page in front of it. When you make a change to a master page, the change appears in all document pages unless you override the change.
Open your Layers window. If it is not already open, open it by going to (Window > Layers). Rename the layer with the placed pdf ‘Background’ and then create a new layer and name it ‘Numbering’. Lock the ‘Background’ layer. Then select the ‘Numbering’ Layer.
If you are designing and building a Trident-class submarine, a MIG-27 jet fighter or an international space station, you, most likely, will need millions of parts, so a long part number format would be needed and will make sence. Otherwise, save yourself the trouble of reading all those zeros and make your numbering system practical. Our Documentation Management Procedure shown in Chapter 3 prescribes part numeration with a four-digit part number format that allows for 9,999 parts, which is probably enough for majority of companies. If your operation is small, drop it to three digits – you may always change it later if you need to. One of my customers, who won my “the Best Part Number” Grand Prize, numbered their documents as 201, 202, 203, and so on. Short and sweet!
I have two master pages for this book, one (master B) is blank for the start of a chapter and then there is a master (Master A) with a spread which features the main content and page numbers. I do have the preferences set to “Section Numbering” and in the Pages Panel > Numbering & Section Options the “Automatic Page Numbering” is checked. Everything is left blank in each section (There are 4 so far).
Sequence fields are the first method that Word developed for automatic numbering and, in the words of John McGhie, the most robust. They are virtually unbreakable. Here is a link to the Microsoft Office reference page for them in Word 2010. As far as I know, the syntax and the switches have remained unchanged since before Windows.
Then go to Type in the menu running along the top of the screen and select Insert Special Character > Markers > Current Page Number. An A Marker will be dropped into the text frame. This will adjust to the relevant page number on each page in your document.
Let’s say you are working on a book with lots of images and/or chapters. And the file sizes are enormous. In fact, they are so big that you thought it would be smart to divide the book into separate documents for parts or chapters. That is exactly what we did with Book Design Made Simple. It was more convenient for us to swap smaller sections back and forth than to send the entire book each time. All the parts or chapters were linked together at the end using InDesign’s Book feature. So this blog post explains how to create a Book file, or as we call it, “book” a book.
Look in the pages panel at the first page of a document. See the black triangle over the page thumbnail? That indicates that the page is the beginning of a new section. Each page that begins a new section in your document will have that little black triangle over it.

SOP is any predesignated prefix for a type of document (e.g. SOP for Standard Operating Procedures, PM for Preventive Maintenance Records, SI/SR for Sanitation Instructions and Sanitation Records/, PR for Packaging Records, etc). These could be anything that makes sense for your company
Double-click the master spread or master page icon that you plan to apply to your document. The master page icons are located at the top of the Pages panel, and the document page icons are located beneath.
