By default, the Running Header variables insert the first occurrence (on the page) of the text to which the specified style is applied. Running Header variables are especially useful for displaying the current heading or title in the header or footer.
Our document now has three different sections in it with repeating headers that indicate the section. If we wanted to, we could go through and easily re-name them as needed, remove them, add new sections, etc., without having to go through and retype them on each and every page.
Versions control numbers are not mandatory. They can be assigned when adding a document or checking in a document and can be modified, separately for each document version, at any time. By default the version number is carried over from the last version when document is checked in. Version numbers don’t have to be unique. A version control field can have an optional prefix, but it doesn’t have to be unique.
If you want the page numbering for the first page in this section to start at a particular number other than the first number in the format series, click Start at under Page numbering, and then enter the first number that you want to appear on the first page of the section.
If otherwise, IMO the choice should particularly depend on who’s going to do the “legwork”. If you have a team spreading the load feel free to be as creative as you like. If you are a 1-man documentation system which has been my experience, go for a a procedure which minimises the effort. IMO/EX this is usually the least creative.
Not a chance—InDesign offers a number of improvements and surprises in the area of typesetting. In this chapter, we’ll start with character formatting (font, point size, kerning, and baseline shift are examples of character formatting), move on to paragraph formatting (indents, tabs, space above and below, and composition), and then dive into formatting using character and paragraph styles. Along the way, there may be a joke or two.
So I don’t like this version numbering scheme. But there is an alternative that I do like. I discovered it on a project I worked on a few years back and I’ve tried to introduce it everywhere I’ve been since then.
After struggling with multi-level lists I finally figured out one of the major problems. If you are struggling but you haven’t already read other tutorials, you definitely should, but this tip will be useful no matter what. Before setting or re-setting the list for a given heading, select “None”. Then go back and select the list you want. For some reason if you try to switch directly from one list to another it does horrid things that I do not understand. Hope that helps.
I would like to make the XXX part visualize the page number of the page I am referring to. I saw that you can place bookmarks in the document, and create hyperlinks to those bookmarks, but so far I could not manage to visualize the page number tied to a bookmark.
This is how our document looks. It’s 16 pages long and has page numbers applied to it, as in Step 1, throughout. You can see that the main text of the book starts on Page 7 of the document, and that the page number marker has adjusted accordingly to mark this as 7. But we want this to be numbered as 1 in the book instead. So, let’s discover how to do just that.
Who was it who said that procedures and forms had to be numbered? It eludes us, but we would like to give them a kick in the pants. Almost every Company that already has an in-house management system or one they outsourced has the whole thing numbered from start to end and even we are guilty of it.
Enter the total number of rows that fit in the detail section of the document’s middle pages when you print a document with more than two pages. You specify this value so that the system calculates the total number of pages used to print a document. If document numbering in word do not complete this field, the system uses the value that you enter in the Detail Section Total Number of Rows field as the number of rows for the first page.
Word automatically formats text as a numbered list when you when you type a number and a period followed by a space: Word adds a tab and creates a ¼-inch hanging indent. (If the paragraphs already have hanging indents, the original settings are preserved.) The quickest way to create a custom numbered list is to change the formatting of an existing (or automatically created) list.
I completely understand the desire to make it look logical and sequential and user/auditor-friendly. And at first, the numbering system seems ideal. As others have pointed out – and as you’ve realized – things change, organizations evolve and so too does the documentation. Rather than become caught up in the numbering, focus on who owns the documentation, the document control process and the method by which documents are created as new processes come into play.
I have our folder structure set up based on our process flow. So basically our high level procedures will have their own folder and all of the respective processes and task lists will go in that folder. By using a good name for the file (enabling easy access) we would have all we need.
We also want to setup right away the crop marks for the tickets. Create another layer and call it “crop marks & score marks.” We will place the crop marks and the score line onto this layer. Start placing crop marks that you create with the Pen Tool (P) around the ticket.
It provides buttons on the Add-Ins tab of the ribbon which can be used to apply numbering in a variety of formats. The ZIP file contains both the template itself and a self extracting archive file which will attempt to load the template in the default Word Startup folder.
The document management system automatically assigns a unique number to every single document that is added to FileHold. This number called the: FileHold ID Number. This number can be added to the document electronically and (coming soon) even printed on the document.
Pro-sal-001, and in my opinion is better than using only letters,one big advantage is that when used in a databases, you can do powerful searchings, and when browsing on the computers, easily the documents are located by type, process,consecutive
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)
Next double-click your document for Chapter 1 in the Book file to open it. In your Chapter 1 document, you’ll manually start the page numbering at page 1, and switch from lowercase roman numerals to arabic numerals. So go to the Pages panel, click on the thumbnail image of the first page of the document to highlight it, then click Numbering & Section Options in the Pages fly-out menu. Select Start Page Numbering at, and type 1 in the adjoining box. Then select arabic numerals in the Page Numbering Style drop-down menu, as shown below. Click OK, and all the pages in the document will now be numbered with arabic numerals starting with number 1.
I’d like to add that I noticed our numbering system has been changed a few times in the past, due to lack of a good doc control process in place, and while it is a bit annoying, it doesn’t seem to have caused that many issues.
Warning You can change the tab or remove it individually in each paragraph. BUT, each time you make a customization to your numbering scheme, the .25″ tab will reappear in all the paragraphs that are a part of the list. This behavior occurs whether the numbering is tied to styles or not.
